Footprints on the Moon
Spring Grant 2014 - Production Stage
Current project status: POST-PRODUCTION
The Philippines, 2050. Franz, a young executive and aspiring writer, finds a sketchbook at a coffee shop: page after page of drawings of a charming woman along with notes written in an unknown language. Franz’s interest in finding out the story behind his find – and hopefully making it his own – leads him to Ethan, the owner of the book.
Qatar, 2007. Ethan attends his brother’s wedding, where he meets Ada, the woman who will change the course of his life. They fall in love and venture on a winter romance. Being young and carefree, the couple forgets one major fact: they are not in their home country. Ultimately, they trigger a chain of events that separates them.
Now, several decades later, it’s up to Franz to reunite them.
