Time never comes back

Often recklessness such as attention to mobile phone, non-observance of safety rules such as belt, helmet and speed limits as well as inexperienced drinking lead to fatal car accidents. Accidents that can either make you a handicapped person can or cost you your own life or your beloved persons' life. Time does not turn backwards and that's what we must all think well before we get the handlebar in our hands. In this student film, the main character, Erianna, is one of the lucky ones and time comes back. In real life though... Time never comes back.
