The lives of three lonely strangers in the city interconnect: a blind man with an obsession, a boy who sees the world differently, and a girl who is more than meets the eye.

Was a bit worried seeing the 30 min running time of this, but it didn't feel that long in the watching, which is a credit to the performers and creative team. A few little story-telling / time-jump elements which were a little confusing (much clearer on second viewing!) but perhaps that was part of the appeal. And, I felt the blind man's story was interesting but I wonder what the film would be like without it? Or if there was some interaction between him and the couple somewhere aside from in an audio recording? Anyway - great performances which really sold the story, and nice lighting and camera work pulling it all together in a lovely piece.

Hi Matt, Thanks for taking the time to watch (twice!) and for your kind words - greatly, greatly appreciated! There was an original ending in the script that tied the characters together in a much more evident way, but unfortunately we had to lose it for various reasons. It's a real shame. For me, the film was around the theme of loneliness, rather than a love story and so I hoped the blind man, someone who's lost love, would offer a counterbalance to the other two characters coming together. Thanks again for watching!
