After the Reunion

Category: short

Year: 2016
Length: 13'

Fifty-year-old Saila wakes up after a class reunion to find that 1) she's not in her own bed, and that 2) she's sharing it with Esa, a vaguely-remembered classmate. Their morning together brings a lot with it: flashes of last night's party but also of others that are long since past. The memories refresh old emotions which mingle with her current feelings, those that have been enriched by skepticism about life - and by her hangover. Esa would prefer to have scrambled eggs, but a single question is eating away at Saila: Is it true that the older we get, the stronger we become, or do people just say that?
