Clouds takes viewers through the journey of a broken man, using cloud watching as a form of escapism to get his mind off of a breakup. While cloud watching works at first, his ex-girlfriend still manages to sneak into his thoughts sending him into a downward spiral. As his ex-girlfriend infests his thoughts, the man’s mental stability begins unraveling at increasing speeds. In a last-ditch effort to get away from all his thoughts, the man decides he wants to become a cloud. What follows this decision is a spiritual journey represented through transcendental visuals that are unexplainable in words. While escapism is an important and valid method of dealing with something such as a breakup, Clouds displays the dangers of letting it consume you.
