WHY (War Within)

WHY is a poetic short film that throws light on relationship struggle and depression.
We live in a day and age, where toxicity is the order of the day, most women and men are in toxic relationships and they are afraid to leave or can't leave because of what people might say or because of low self-esteem..
Most times they even live in denial of the fact that, their partner is the forbidden fruit that will lead to their doom..
This piece was done to create awareness on issues like this and to also let me know that its ok to leave when things start to be too toxic and if you wake up each day feeling like you are drowning, just know its time to exit as your mental health should be prioritized, love you first and love yourself enough to leave what's not right for you.
