Short Film: THE WAY THINGS END, 5min., Norway, Drama/LGBT

LGBT Toronto Film Festival

52395bcf23 poster

Told from the perspective of Sofia, a queer woman discovering and asserting who she is as a young adult, THE WAY THINGS END is a poetic short film about two friends who are coming to terms with the painful truth that a shift in perspective can sometimes end a friendship. We hear Sofia’s emotional response to the friendship breakup, as she reflects on the conflict that has come between her and Isabel, her former ride-or-die; this internal voice is filled with sadness, guilt and confusion. Gradually Sofia begins to remember parts of the friendship that were good and honest, as she finds a new perspective; forgiveness.
