Director Statement

“There is no reality except the one contained within us. That is why so many people live such an unreal life. They take the images outside of them for reality and never allow the world within to assert itself.”
- Hermann Hesse

It is said that a different version of ourselves exists in the minds of everyone who knows us. The main character is forced to confront the reality of her late best friend. She sees her boyfriend, her friends and her own reality reflected through the eyes of someone she thought she knew well, but had not realized how much alike they actually were.
