short film 2014
Phenomena is a hyper-real, close and sensitive study of three very different yet successful lives turned around by the inexplicable.
We follow Esther the young journalist making waves, Marlene a highly skilled rare plant horticulturalist and Frank a happy retiree who collects records. They all are at different stages in life and share a similar sense of accomplishment until one day their lives take a dramatic turn for the worse. Suddenly unable find joy or purpose in their once happy existences, we follow them as they attempt to come to terms with what has happened and try to reclaim their lives.
