Synopsis: After months in isolation, a young woman gets a surprise visitor who shakes up her daily quarantine routine. This is a short about isolation made in isolation.
During quarantine I challenged myself to create a film, completely on my own. The idea for Henrietta came to me after weeks of self-isolation. After not seeing another human face in person for far too long, finding a spider in my bathtub actually felt like a welcomed surprise. It’s a story of loneliness, but also of hope. And hope can come from the strangest places.
