NO SMOKING

(a film that's not actually about smoking)

If it's not about smoking, what's it about?

It's about secrets. This short film exposes how detrimental secrets can be to a relationship. What may seem small and insignificant, may just be the thing that destroys a relationship.

I want this film to make those who see it look within themselves for anything that should be brought to light. Sometimes we hide away our darkest feelings, thoughts, and actions without realizing the effect it can have, not only on us but those we have relations with.
