The Box

A girl is trapped in a box - or, is she? This 16mm/HD, surrealist short follows Luna as she listlessly travels through different environments, trying to find a way out of "the box" in which she is trapped. However, this dreamlike journey takes her in a circle, one door simply leading to another - does she truly find her way out?
