Dir: Various

A collection of studies on human vulnerability, the short film way. In this diverse overview of what it means to be exposed and feeling the foundations cracking under our feet, stories of frailty and resilience are explored with disarming honesty. As proven by the characters in these short films, it takes a huge amount of courage to lay ourselves bare and ultimately find our voice and unique strength.
