Reflections

"Reflections" is a 2D-animated film composed of approximately 1,100 individual drawings.

What do our memories become? They are alive inside, even when the reality is dead.

The fleeting quality of love forces a girl to question if her relationship ever truly existed, or if it was all in her head.
