"Cloud," a well-known demon, has stolen a woman's reflection. My third film for the sixth UWA theme-based machinima challenge: "Reflections." In all three I've attempted to play on this word "reflect," and in so doing expose different and intensely personal trials in human relationships and ways to surmount them. In this film, both husband and doctor struggle to relate to a woman who is losing her memory.
