This is a still from the beginning of the film, featuring the title of the short and a high school’s football field in the background. The film centers around the notion of ruminating on the past and realizing where a path decidedly forked not in our favor. What better place to begin this journey than on a high school football field, where dreams both come true and are destroyed beyond recognition.
We all have regrets, but in this this gentle and starkly autumnal voyeur into the connective tissue between three individuals and the regrets they carry , I bet you’ll feel a little better about yours.
