Meet Tristan (Reza RAHADIAN), a 20-something guy who feels useless to his friends and family who often set him up with tasks only to have to pick up the pieces when he fails. At a point of despair, he reaches out to a psychologist who makes him realise something he had never imagined before.

A simple yet effective short that illustrates how perceptions can be manipulated, where good acting, tight framing and evocative lighting in domestic settings convey the mental state of a character effectively enough to deliver a devastating final moment.
