Musical Chairs - A Battle Royale / Short Film

A revealing battle royale of vices in a cutthroat match of musical chairs. Who will conquer all?

The concept visually contextualizes an inner battle over negative thought patterns personified as the 7 deadly sins, each being multiple versions of oneself, bringing hope you can persevere.
