The story follows Thomas who after passing away comes back as a ghost to fulfil a promise before it's too late to save his grieving mother. Losing her only child, Rose must battle her demons and deep mental health issues. With the help of the local florist, Thomas will bring her back to "life".
My mother is a single mother of three and works in the medical field. COVID-19 hit her hard, and she has been struggling ever since. I have witnessed people I love dearly around me battling mental health. Some succeeded and others did not.

This is a story about a worldwide issue that is slowly being taken seriously. We want to shed some light on it and open people's mind to help those who did not have a chance. Through visual storytelling we want the film to tackle sensitive questions yet showing hope and perseverance. The image will have a very soft and dreamy like feel while still juggling between Rose's darkness and Thomas' light.
Every frame will feel like a painting inspired by a renaissance portrayal of life. Visual metaphors will strongly be used throughout the film to furthermore emphasize on certain aspects of the story. This is a production design heavy shoot. Rose's house will change, shift and evolve with her. It is a character of its own. The florist comes in play as this new, sweet and angelic figure. He will help Rose raise from a tool and the key to saving Rose. Below you will find references and inspirations to give you an idea of the visuals.
