(PG-13: Language) Michael Goode’s short film has the exact same premise as another viral short: a man wakes up in a white room and is given the answers to any question he might have. But this one is a bittersweet tale about the one that got away.
A man wakes up in a stark white room with nothing but himself and a stranger, who tells him he’s in purgatory and has a minute to ask any question before he moves on to his eternal resting place. So when you get to the afterlife, explore it. Have a short walk at the very least.
