A metaphor for fear, the unknown, and intimate relationships, "The Forest" is about a man and a woman as they venture through a metaphorical space and what happens to both parties when one person checks out of the journey.
The title and idea for this film came when a friend asked me how I felt at the end of a long relationship with someone I felt deeply about. My response, "Like a little kid lost in the forest. All alone."
