The Forest is Red
Awkward, socially dysfunctional Nathan writes strange poems, buries jam in the park and converses with the voices. Voices that fight for his attention and demand his subordination. On his daily, semi-hynotic journeys through his alientating, colorless city, he searches for companionship and happiness. He thinks he finds it when he meets the girl he loves - but to whom he never speaks. This surreal, magical and philosophically charged take examines the life of an outcast as he struggles to blend into a world where everyone searches for their own uniqueness.
