Private Project

ALONE

The trajectory of the film maps a single day in the life of the protagonist. Starting from eight-thirty in the morning right up to five in the evening, we are introduced to his lived reality. In its short duration, the narrative also familiarizes the viewer with a dystopic world where a virus has wreaked immense havoc on humankind.

As our protagonist is left all by himself for a period of about a hundred days, he is also portrayed as battling doubts, uncertainty pertaining to existence, but more importantly, the isolation and loneliness of a world that seems to have fallen apart. The entirety of the plot unfolds in a first-person voice, striving to imbue itself with intimacy and an emotional appeal. However, unsure of answers to questions of survival, of both himself as well as that of his family, when he finally decides to take matters in his own hands, will he truly find his destination
