Cold Forest is described in poetic imagery. There is one girl who is shunned by people in her life. She is always lonely. In real life, she is suffering from ringing in the ears and she can't see the colour as if it doesn't exist. Every single day and every single time she longs for death but she can't die because she is worrying. What if she is alone forever? Even after death. So she escapes to her dream but dying in the dream is always series of awakening. The more she dreams, the more she confuses which is dream or real life. No worlds for her, no words for her.

Mia lives without family or friends. She spends every morning in a dense forest next a lone tree, pointing a gun at the man who changed her life, but she never pulls the trigger.
This short film is about trauma and how it can affect someone's life.
