Follow the notes? Or follow the light.
There is no cure for the apocalypse. You just survive one day at a time.
"There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds."
- Laurell K. Hamilton, Mistral’s Kiss
Foxglove is a plant used for medicine of the heart, but poisonous if used incorrectly. The same can be said for treatments of clinical depression. Our generation is the most depressed yet, struggling under the weight of social responsibility and a ruined impression of ‘we can be anything we want to be’.
Foxglove is a proposed short film, following Eli as he is guided back home by cryptic notes from his missing wife. He has woken up dead to find himself facing the apocalypse, unsure if he is willing to pursue life as he once knew it. His family rallies around him desperately but the only person he really needs is nowhere to be found.
In zombie limbo he retraces the most precious memories in his life, but does doing so change anything?
"The complete final destruction of the world, as described in the biblical book of Revelation."
A vision board for Foxglove to give an idea of the emotional turbulence of our protagonists journey, the locations he goes to and the relationships that save him.
