The Hoarder

"The Hoarder" is a short film following a man, Josh, consumed by hoarding after his grandmother's death. Two years of therapy led him to a revelation: the only way to heal is by helping himself. Amidst cluttered memories, he embarks on a purging journey of self-discovery and healing. Confronting his grief, he sheds possessions, releasing emotional burdens and finding closure. This transformative process unveils his resilience and the profound impact of soul-searching. "The Hoarder" illustrates the power of personal agency in overcoming adversity, as he clears both his space and his heart, ultimately finding freedom amidst the remnants of the past.
