The Tide

2015, 8 minutes

Cinematic drama about a man struggling with past trauma.

As Joseph heads home he literally bumps into a gang of young kids. Bored and looking for an argument, the kids decide to turn a casual accident into a serious incident. But as the situation quickly escalates out of Joseph’s control, he is reminded of a moment from his school days when he learned the terrifying reality of what he’s capable of when pushed past his limit. That moment changed the course of his life. It taught him that there are times to be calm and controlled, and times when only a non-rational response will suffice. But right now, in this moment, whichever course of action he takes it won’t only be him that is affected.
