WINNER | BEST NARRATIVE EXPERIENCE
RAINDANCE FILM FESTIVAL 2021
Upon visiting your family's home after your mom's passing, you are whisked into a forgotten memory from childhood. Each interaction is as meaningful as it is fascinating when you rediscover your past and delight in the simplicities of being a kid once again.
However, something is not quite right. Perhaps it's the masked tension between your parents. Maybe you are hearing voices that seem to be only in your mind. It could even be that there is a monster hiding in your closet. After all, respite is only temporary when you are at the whim of your own mind.
