Director Statement :
So often we operate on assumptions. Our particular set of past experiences combine to shape our worldview and this becomes our operational definition of what is 'normal'. With this short film, we wanted to explore a moment in time when a set of assumptions are turned upside down for two lonely people at two very different places in their lives.
