When George meets Ruby he thinks he's found "the one" but when things don't go as planned he starts to become obsessed with her. Told entirely through photos, we witness the birth and death of a relationship. This film was inspired by the fact that we share thousands of images of ourselves over the internet. It cost nothing to make and took three days to shoot.
