A short poetic narrative about urban vs rural living, identity and belonging. Two people—an old man living on a small island and a young woman living in one of the world’s biggest cities—discuss why no other place on earth could ever be home.

Shot in and around Shanghai, China and Prince Edward Island, Canada. Shot entirely on a Canon 5D, 7D and with equipment I could carry on my back.
