Spring Grants 2016 - Production Stage

Abdullah Al-Mulla / Short Narrative / Qatar / 2018 / 10 min / Original Language: Arabic / Interests: Drama


A blue-eyed coma patient swims from the end of a pier to the deepest point of the ocean of himself, where he meets his long-lost, yellow-eyed ego in a battle of wit and brawn – for control, for resolution, for truth. A daemon lingers about them whispering, slowly taking control, until he reveals himself. Now, the protagonist must make a decision. Will he rot on the ocean floor? Or will he soar through the ocean and up to the sky with the help of ego?
