The Shattered Dream

Art, dreams and tragedy is perhaps the worst set of elements to be tied together in a person's life. The short film explores one such narrative about a dedicated artist. The story is narrated by a school teacher to his young pupils. It is one of a dancer who perhaps valued nothing more than her art and performance.

She is painted as a picture of grace, hard work and sincerity by the teacher. However, soon she is struck by tragedy, the point in the story coinciding with the ringing of the bell, indicating the end of the period (and maybe also their day) for the school kids. It is at this juncture that an unexpected turn awaits the audience. As the teacher is left by himself in an empty classroom, the story has a final offering for the viewer before it concludes.
