Italy, between 1943 and 1944: many Italian cities are bombed by the US air fleet. To protect themselves from attacks, hundreds of men, women and children are forced to take refuge in the underground tunnels of a small town, remaining confined to the bowels of the earth. Some men organize expeditions looking for supplies for the whole community, putting their lives at risk. Among these men is Paolo, husband of Anna and father of Luca, a ten-year-old boy, whose only desire is to go out of that dark and cold place. But the outside world is too dangerous for him.

Adopted from the published poetry of Will Reyes, this project was created to maximize mental health awareness and decimate the associated stigmas on an international level.
The script is an adaptation of poems from “Lost In Life’s Ocean” by Will Reyes, woven into a four intersecting storylines. It is 8 minutes and 20 seconds–because we wanted experiencing the film to correspond directly, in real-time, to the 500-second journey of fresh sunlight escaping the surface of the sun and making its way millions of miles across the universe to us. So that by the end of the film, the audience will have been provided with a brand new generation of light to guide their way out of darkness and ignite a flame in their hearts.
