Director Statement

This film originated as an exploration of a singular, simple space with one distinct light source. In it, I hope to convey a clear story with minimal dialogue and strong visual aesthetic. The story originated not from a distinct personal experience but out of a desire to explore both the terror and the beauty of being alone with oneself. We follow this woman for a few minutes on a single, private night, and see her as she wrestles with her grief, alone. And, hopefully, we see ourselves in her and realize that even our loneliness can be shared.
