Watch Stages

official selection - All American High School Film Festival 

After a brutal breakup, Ben decides he needs a vacation. He packs up, and he escapes to a secluded beach. For a while, it works: She's off his mind. Unfortunately, denial doesn’t last forever. A stubbed toe catapults Ben into anger, and a hotel brawl pushes him into bargaining. From there, Ben journeys through all five stages of grief in order to finally accept the loss of a woman he loved. 

Inspired by love’s short fuse, created by a hopeless romantic, and saturated by my own desire to heal.
