Private Project

On the High

The day before the wedding, Anna and her friends get stuck on top of a skyscraper. In an attempt to get out of the unfinished tower, she meets her soul mate in their savior. The morning comes and the lovers part forever.

За день до свадьбы Анна с подругами застревает на вершине небоскреба. В попытках выбраться из недостроенной башни, она встречает родную душу в их спасителе. Наступает утро и любовники расстаются навсегда. (Для Российских фестивалей, есть версия без ненормативной лексики)
