It sucks to be someone’s second choice all the time.
Michelle is this guy’s second choice. A backup. A fallback. A lover.
An enlightened, well-meaning friend introduces her to Believe, a trendy self-help course that promises to unleash her potential.
She tries to find what’s holding her back from love.
It’s a lot of money to realise she has to unhitch herself from a relationship she’s not happy with.
She’s cynical at first, but finds herself sold to the idea on discovering her potential. Because what’s more important than putting yourself first?
Her self-discovery leads her to something she knew all along: we believe what we want to, even if it’s built deceit, white lies, good intentions, or a feel-good pyramid scheme.
In the end, she gets exactly what she deserves.
‘Fall’ won an award for Best Script at the Fresh Wave International Short Film Festival in Hong Kong.
