We hear a couple’s breakup call while seeing their best moments, exploring the paradox of how life can be so painful and beautiful at the same time.

The Break Up Call explores the complex feelings at the moment a relationship starts to unravel. In the midst of tragic endings we think about all the beautiful memories from the beginning. The compressed timeline illustrates the confusion of feeling so alive as something is dying.

Bryan Manly Davis and Danielle Guldin’s powerful performance grounds the short with their connection and vulnerability. Hopefully this emotional ride makes us all feel a little more alive and human.
