Director Statement

During high school I met my ex-girlfriend. Everything was incredible but month after month different misfortunes happened that turned the relationship into a minefield instead of a zone
of comfort and safety.

During the worst months of the relationship I was able to witness unknown habits in myself such as anxiety and depression. I wrote the short film to convey the emotions I felt years ago.

I want the viewer to cry, that the situation of the actress reminds him of the feeling of some past relationship.

The short film is an excuse for the viewer to willingly suffer.
