Private Project

Tin Soldiers & Crawdads

The relationship between a father & son is put to the test during their yearly trip to the countryside.
There's no internet, no running water, it's the hottest day on record and when the fuse is lit there is nothing stopping the flames.
Fire consumes and illuminates the years that have passed between them and the distance it built comes burning down.
From the ashes seeps memories and images of what has been, and will never be again
