‘Take It Back’ is the story of an ordinary man whose entire world changes in the blink of an eye. He finds himself in a moment where a split second decision will determine the outcome of the rest of his life. With a slight move of his finger, he makes the wrong decision and enters a road where there is no turning back. ‘Take It Back’ was shot entirely in one take, one shot. The camera never cuts. Using this method, we are able to see the real-time effect that regret can have on an ordinary man. We float through the story in a way that enables us to experience the film rather than just watch it.
