The Sacrifice

The Sacrifice | Concept Film

7 friends. 7 different paths.

After death, comes sadness and after life comes the beginning. 7 friends go on a journey of self-discovery after the death of their close friend. As they are left to mourn in the tragedy they take the opportunity to get away from the world and reconnect as friend. But soon after the darkness follows and they soon realise that they are made for something greater.

But what if the reality they are in doesn't exist? Until the sacrifice is made nothing will make sense.
