Winner - Best Thriller Short - Festigious International Film Festial 2015!
"When the one you trust most in this world becomes the one that you fear..."
One of the most daring short films of 2013, Ashes is a film about the places we go to in our own mind to escape reality. It's a film about all the different thoughts which run through our head in one sudden, life-changing moment. Above all, it's a film about two people who were in love, but cannot look at each other in the same way anymore.
The film follows Sarah, and shows the world the way that she sees it. When she is happy, the scene is that of Hollywood glamour and perfection. But when she starts to doubt the intentions of Mark, her previously caring boyfriend, the world around her starts to crumble...
