"Days of Gray" is a timeless tale set to an original score by Icelandic band Hjaltalín. A boy journeys away from his family's strange yet tradition-bound home to the far side of a forbidden boundary. There, a girl leads him through an even stranger place of distortions and mutations. It is a world naturalistic yet awry, inviting yet fearsome, epic in darkness and in hope.
Together, the boy and girl discover a world that is theirs and, in the process, who they might be.
'YOU ARE NOT ALONE', at the forefront, is about a college graduate, Natalie, reconnecting with friends and family as she visits her hometown over the Fourth of July. She floats through the proceedings of the July 4th celebration her town is known for. In the background, the town is inundated with news about a dangerous sociopath who is in the midst of a spree killing and reportedly within the area. The second half of the picture is what happens when Natalie crosses paths with said killer.
The film is 100% told through her eyes.

Desperately trying to stop the mysterious offender, Jakob finds his compulsively straight and dutiful self in constant danger of being infected with his opponent's madness. There is something about the 'Samurai' that strikes a hidden chord within him, threatening to unlock his own innermost demons...
Due to a traumatic brain injury, my dad does not remember anything that happened in the home we lived in for over twenty years, or golfing, which he did regularly for fifty years. This film will follow my dad’s return to these places he cannot remember. What is memory? Has your memory of something ever been replaced with a photo or video? Do you remember it from the camera’s lens? This film explores the relationship of the captured image and memory.
