I can’t say a lot about the specifics of the story as it would cross into spoiler territory. I will say that this short film feels like part of a larger story that hasn’t been told yet. I would defintely be interested in a feature film about these characters and their backstory. Hopefully, that is Mr. Soni’s plan.
So using my special short scale of one to five, five being awesome, I’m giving this film 3 questions.
