It is rare to see a short that draws you in and affects you so deeply. A story about friendship, betrayal, loss and nostalgia that anyone with a heart could feel. The fact that the main characters are successful white businessmen in a dry corporate world makes it even more powerful. Men of consequence, but, at heart, just boys in the playground.
The film reminds us of what is truly important. Not all of the money, power and success in the world can replace the value of a true friend. Yet how often we let our egos get in the way and destroy the only things that matter. At the end of the day, we are defined not by any worldly wealth but by how those we care about saw us.
The performances by Jay Sanders and Joel Swetow are stellar. Myles Price is clearly a filmmaker to look out for.
