This short film is about health and sleep deprivation. I was inspired to make this film after a period of sleep deprivation I unthinkingly subjected myself too which led to mood change and unhappiness. The film is about how detrimental lack of sleep can be - even leaving physical evidence on the body and beneath the eyes. In the film the main character (played by me) accepts that she needs to sleep and as a result is returned to health. Ultimately the movie values health and self-care, as well as good old-fashioned sleep!
The film is also in a way about self-indulgence, often people avoid having a "good night's sleep" or "lie in" because they feel they don't deserve it or prioritise work. Ultimately, I think this can lead to a lack of self-care and again health issues. In the film, the character learns to indulge herself and as a result is returned to health.
