Glow is a coming-of-age, experimental, short film in which we follow Philip’s journey in overcoming family issues, fear, and mental health struggles to succeed in his dream of becoming a successful dancer. The film’s essence is about finding your inner glow, when you are down in the dark, surrounded by your own metaphoric demons and the importance of reflection.

Glow also tries to challenge societal stigma on male dancers. It relies mainly on body language, mimics, dance, and music to express emotions, rather than dialogue.
