The short film tells the story of a young pastor loved and adored by the people around him. Things change for him when he has to confront a hidden truth about himself—a truth that could make or break him psychologically. But, whatever decision he makes, he is still going to crash and burn, for life as he once knew it would never be the same again.
At the end of this I wanted to wonder a few things. Why is it not longer? Why is it not a full movie and then I thought of the things I loved best about it. The short film “Hell or High Water” does not provide any answers. In fact, it barely poses any questions. It reveals a dilemma, it reveals a struggle, it depicts societal reactions to it and then it ends.
In its short 30 minutes runtime, our leads scatter emotions with very little words. Enyinna pulls you into a struggle, a struggle Daniel K. Daniel looks like he is working hard at forgetting. With amazing music and beautiful cinematography, this short is able to bring up the matter of a valid societal issue. It is left to us to decide how we want to deal with the issue.
