When Light Fades

Director: Daan Groot
Poetic short film about a boy suffering from depression.
Ten-year-old Tim suffers from severe depression. While other children are blithely playing, he walks around with a heavy heart. He does not join them, so he is all alone in the schoolyard. The more isolated he gets, the stronger his visions become of a possible escape.
