Bloom is a story about taking risks. As the short film opens, we meet Isabella, an Argentinian girl arriving in the U.S. for the very first time to visit a long-time friend. Looking to escape the monotony of everyday life, Isabella finds herself in a remote West Coast mountain town armed with nothing but her luggage and scant understanding of the English language. Upon realizing her luggage was mixed up at the airport, she embarks on an unexpected journey with a stranger, one that flips her world upside down. Limited by language barriers, these two strangers must rely only on body language and facial expressions to convey even simple thoughts and ideas.

Trust your instincts. Remember where you came from. Don't try to be all things to all people, but rather everything to a certain few. This is about exploring the road less taken, and the journey toward what lies ahead.

Good lovely story! At the begining I thought that it'll be just a few nice looking shots and thats all, in the middle I started to think that that it is a commercial of LINCOLN only, but at the end of the films the last scene in the car was so dramatic that I really fell cool. Good job.
