The camera is focused on birthday candles spelling the word “HAPPY”. A woman’s hand lights the candles and we watch as they burn down until the surface they are sitting on catches alight.
HAPPY was made in response to my journey to become a mother but finding myself childless. HAPPY talks of the missed birthday parties and how the best laid plans can go horribly wrong.
