One Second In Time
Runtime: 7 minutes 45 seconds
One Second In Time follows the life of Adam through his melancholy and somewhat mind-numbing view on life, as he reminisces his past and tries to invigorate the optimism he was once engulfed in as a child. The story is layered by narrations from the protagonist as an older wiser man, recounting his values and experiences. The reason why the protagonist narrates his own life is to echo his disconnection to himself as he is only truly able to reconcile with himself by passing on his knowledge. In the case of Adam this is a plea of redemption. A warning to the next generation not to follow down the same path of heartache and pain as he did.
Nonetheless, his plea is only met with resentment and rejection, continuing the cycle. Generally, there is intended to be a positive message of self-realization and self-identity, to understand that mistakes in his relationships are what build his character.
