Forest Soul alludes to the spirit of a young woman living alone in the forest. Throughout the film it remains unknown whether the character is a ghost or spirit. Post-production, soundtrack and edit style/format aims to create sense of a disjointed and surreal experience in the forest for the protagonist e.g. Lost moments in time, daydreams, otherworldly experiences.
Narrative of the film is to a certain degree abstract. Although there is no intention to produce a fixed story for the film, there should be a sense of activity taking place in the forest.
