PITY
Director John Pata
Separation can be a terrible thing. It can break you down; physically, mentally, and emotionally. The person you once were can begin to slip away. How much agony will it take before you lose yourself? Would you realize just how far gone you are? This is a portrait of a man at the bottom, struggling to find an answer, after the wrong things happened at the wrong time. This is a story of loss.
