Private Project

Like an Hummingbird

A girl was sexual abused and then she wants revenge from her rapist. So the girl talks with a psychologist "Dr. Eli" to find a solution of her problem. The girl called "Amelia", talked about her past when the rapist "Peder Sem" did the abuse. The story is a type of redemption from a girl for a new life.
I used the Hummingbird like a metaphor of the crescendo of the story. Like the heartbeat of the hummingbird is an increase of speed like story.
