About this submission

Natural Talent follows a single-minded, perfectionistic woman struggling to obtain a highly sought-after promotion. Rather than accept her fate, she claws desperately toward her goal, until an opportunity arises to eliminate her star coworker.

I chose to share this story because I am drawn to exploring obsession - where it originates, how it blinds us from our rational and empathetic instincts, and how it compels us to treat an abstract goal as necessary to our survival. I find it especially intriguing when a story makes an unfathomable act seem understandable, which is what I sought to accomplish with this project.
