About this submission
In school, I was always told "write what you know". This story is what I know. Through themes of friendship and betrayal, violence, and compassion. This film is about loss, masculinity, and growing up. Two best friends discovering the new world around them and facing the pressure of their futures together. It is dedicated to the friends we have lost and outgrown and a love letter to the child within us all. Our goal is to help people feel seen through our film and to remind everyone that only through compassion can we stay strong through the darkness.
