Experiencing Interruptions?

Broken Edge

A girl search aimlessly after a dramatic event.This film creates nothingness, a break from the civilized world, questioning what really matters on a primitive level. It does not impart the meaning of happiness or tragedy, but it focuses on a specific moment of a person’s internal being: the condition, the unspoken.
