Solo Finale is a story of a relationship gone awry. Depicted through poetic, surreal pictures, where the physics of the world we know do not always apply, it is an allegory of the polarity of love.

Solo Finale is about the forces that draw and repel us. It is an allegory for the contradictions in life. I show this through a relationship between a man and a woman that goes very wrong. It is about curiosity and lust, use and abuse, and the mistakes we make over and over again. And we end up in a new place with no map to find our way back home...
