DIVE – Matthew Saville

A Tauihu Shorts film.


What if your reflection had a mind of its own?

George has hit rock bottom. He’s fallen so low that even his reflection has turned its back on him. When it disappears altogether, George sets off on a quest through the looking glass to haul himself back from the abyss and face his grief.
