Our story is about Mara, a woman who has recently experienced a breakup and is ‘midway’ between heartache and acceptance. As she sifts through the keepsakes of her relationship, we see her memories unfold through sound design and flashbacks. In the end we leave Mara with the subtlest sense of hope and determination. Although she chooses to move forward, she keeps the reminders of the love that has ended because, while lost, it has changed her life forever.
