Director Statement

With this short I'm trying to let a fantasy become true, being able to know what happened in the past, asking whatever unsolved question to friends you used to know or tell the truth that you always wanted to say.
The characters are young guys becoming adults. They will act both like adults and children, they remember their past and act silly, as nothing changed.

This is also a story about power, both Freddie and Harold think that they are in power when really they are not. Freddie had power and he always felt invincible, but actually in the past he screwed up his relationship with his friend Harold.
Harold feels like he can finally unleash his anger towards Freddie, he knows he's right but, as we'll see in the end, that's not enough to be in power.
The person who will show them the truth is Kevin, a well-educated guy that uses comedy to avoid tension between his friends. He is a very good observer and of course, he knows his friends very well.

The game frames this dynamic, one of them might win, but does winning matter? Even if you feel powerful it doesn't mean that you actually are.
