TRAILER: http://bit.ly/2yAa9Js

SYNOPSIS:

An elderly man grapples with the guilt of what he’s done in the strange, whimsical land of his subconscious.

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR:

Wynter Rhys is a visual director, writer, editor from the Seattle area. Her signature aesthetic and storytelling style represents all things controversial and abstract that push the boundaries of society and common thinking. She wants her films to ignite raw truth and get under an audience’s skin. As a director, she begins and instills the story, but she believes the story evolves and resolves itself within the mind of her audience – which is precisely the reason why her films are so psychological. Universally human, undeniably chilling, and beautifully visceral – this is the foundation of every piece she creates.
