Fell Awake

“My birthday was yesterday, was it not?”

'Fell Awake' explores the transience of life, of time, and interpersonal relationship.

We follow our central character, Elias, during the night of his 21st birthday party and the day to follow. In this new day, time, space, and the relationships with those closest to him have changed.

“All time is immemorial. The present is the future ignored, the past not remembered; but how can you hold on to thin air?”
