Synopsis

Three years after the breakup. It is time for Hannah to get even with her ex-boyfriend by telling him all the things that never have been said.


During her birthday Hannah is recording video messages for her ex-boyfriend to whom she has no contact since the breakup years ago. She finally wants to tell him all the things that never have been said. Longing for liberation out of years of imagined repression. While she is trying to find closure, she is struggling with her conscience and needs. It follows an interaction out of sarcasm, anger, grief but also honesty and joy.
