Blueberry Smoothie

Haunted by love, Karl drinks Brad’s favourite smoothie, torn between clinging to memories or embracing healing.

The Story

After a heart-wrenching breakup, Karl clings to memories of his passionate relationship with Brad. Vivid dreams of their happiest moments haunt him, leaving him feeling empty and alone. In a desperate attempt to hold onto the past, Karl consumes Brad’s beloved blueberry smoothie daily, hoping it will keep their connection alive. However, this obsession takes a toll, blinding him to the damage he inflicts on himself and others. As his behaviour grows increasingly erratic and dangerous, Karl must confront reality and make a crucial choice: dwell in the past’s comfort or embrace an uncertain future, to heal and find himself once more.

This short film explores the loss of a relationship and acceptance of that loss and how grief when not dealt with can ruin lives.
