into the dream

I want to create a short film that addresses suicide and the
process of forgiveness and understanding. The significance of it being
filmed underwater relates to the cleansing powers associated with
water and also the unexplainable force and even loss that water can
inflict upon human life. I want to contrast the attractive qualities
of water and our desire to flock to them with its ability to
completely wipe out life as we know it; thus characterizing some of
the struggles of those left behind by those who commit
suicide.
