Synopsis

When a young man comes across a terrible car accident on a remote roadway, he notifies emergency services before reluctantly approaching the crashed vehicle to see who is inside. While he comforts the badly injured driver and awaits the arrival of the ambulance, time seems suspended as the two develop a deep emotional connection. ‘Meantime’ is a complex and moving look at a brief moment of compassion and the powerful bonds that can arise between people in a time of crisis.
