In 'La Masa’ winter is long overrun. We all know what it feels like to be out-of-step with oneself, to watch someone unmistakably out of rhythm. This short digs deep into the weights of life and how our protagonist Ana carries them, her environment crushing even further her sense of self. This heaviness, seeps onto Sara, her confidant and free-spirited sister, and as spring approaches, the sunlight is starting to push through the bleakness. It is time for Ana to wake up and love herself again.
