Private Project

The Silent friend

The world of a lonely person can not only be sad and empty, but also funny.
We observe under a microscope the life of an individual, assuming that his life is filled with worries and self-reflection; but as everyone has the right to happiness, he finds his own.
The filmmakers depict the life of a fictitious modern hermit in this experimental art concept.
