Director Statement:
I wanted to make a film in which the audience becomes a silent observer from a world dominated by grief and loss. My vision was a film in which we immerse ourselves in the inner thoughts of the characters, to a metaphorical, visual and acoustic dimension and where we slowly begin to recognize, in what thoughts we are.
