    • Synopsis
    • Bruadar, a tall quirky fellow, whom is so desperately wanting to accomplish something extraordinary, overlooks his most marvelous and unique attribute - he defies the law of gravity. The Man on the Ceiling avoids the stares and judgment of people while dreaming of the sensation of truly making a difference.

      He has to find the courage to go out and face his fears and realize his mustard seed of potential. Nearby in a small side street café, a Unique Man with a vision and ability with words, turns the tables on reality over a cup of coffee. Alice, a suicidal wallflower, whose ability to blend into her surroundings has left her lost in loneliness, catches a glimpse of the Unique Man’s Vision. Alice treasures the moment, although once home, the moment only magnifies her isolation and despair.

      In an instance of selfless realization Bruadar leaves the world of the ordinary, Alice is “seen”, and life proves itself to be unashamedly capable of marvelous things. An entanglement of vision and imaginings, Instance allows all boundaries to fall and invite the possibility that when everything appears upside down it may very well be the very upside of life after all.

      A unique fable set in an interconnected world of dark, light and independent thought. Instance connects the seemingly random alienations of life and transforms them into stepping-stones of limitless potential. In an urban world where the spirit of the individual is so easily forgotten, the characters of Instance have a delicate and gentle humility in their inner revelations and a bravery to step up, out of the norm and in a curious moment of truth, find a very real sense of belonging.
