when i smile my eyes close
Greece | Greek | Short | Romance / Comedy | 2020 | 17'
A teenage girl believes she never dreams, or otherwise doesn’t remember any of her dreams; apparently, they are too dull to be worth keeping. But in the course of a single day at home, time will pass like a dream. And when she opens her eyes, she will find that her waking life, outside the world of her empty dream state, is a much lovelier place to be in.
Sandra Abulganam, Natalia Swift
