SYNOPSIS: Bella, a young girl looking for fun, finds herself abandoned by her friend and walking through Hackney’s crowded streets. She starts to recall moments spent with her ex-girlfriend when she runs into a familiar place. Suddenly, the city becomes a pile of memories which recurs in an emotive crescendo. Bella tells us a wordless story of a personal and deeply emotional journey by using only her eyes. With his poignant and nostalgic short movie, George Graham highlights how an ended love often persists as an elusive shadow.
