a sweet grace, 2022

Sometimes, mourning the loss of something dear can reveal a unique beauty.

Set in Santa Daeze, the oldest city in Eternity, a sweet grace revisits a compounded journey of some monumental loves.

The gaze, a touch, one simple embrace, what love has the heartbreak left behind? After all, whatever happens now can never take away from what already happened, what was already spoken and lived. Does a hopeful resolve await us? It's impossible to tell, but for now I'll remember.
