An intense ghost story/haunting fully developed in 10 minutes.
The plot may last only 10 minutes, but I love that Bridgette Dutta Portman has created a detailed history between Cara and Brian, and refers to it throughout. This backstory helps the audience understand the transgressions between the characters as well as the symbolic conclusion. ”
