Website Facebook Director's Intention We intend to tell a story in which a person annihilates himself for another, and where the self-annihilation is amplified by abandonment. This is a very common reaction that many of us have experienced and that is easy to relate to. A play of mirrors between the characters and the spectator. A short and cathartic journey towards awareness, aiming at setting free all those who take part in it, both inside the screen and outside. We want to seize the exact moment of the liberation and to tell it apart from the preceding steps, a seesaw of past and present that may become a lifetime trap.
