In the short film DRIFT, Nicky Wright & Matthew Chuang have crafted a thoughtful, multi-layered story of great eloquence and perspicacity. As a man contemplates the life of a homeless man he watches through a restaurant window, we consider free choice versus accidents to determine our life’s path.
Along the way, we examine the empathy we have or lack for our fellow man and twists of fate, while illustrating that no one is exactly who they seem to be, and there is more to people than our assumptions about them.
We shun the homeless man who is a nice guy, but accept the well dressed man who is an ass.
