Winner of the 2012 Royal Television Society of Scotland
Student Award for Best Undergraduate Fiction
Obsessed with recreating a happy memory from childhood, Daniel, a reclusive young man, builds an elaborate machine to help him regress to a past where he was more content. However, troubling recollections of his estranged alcoholic father prevent him from happily dwelling in his ideal memories.
A quiet film that communicates its story with a strong visual and aural aesthetic. Intricate production design and imaginative cinematography immerse the viewer in the cloistered world of a damaged individual. This is miniature magical realism with an emphasis on the painfully real.
