Two estranged young sisters are suffering emotional turmoil when they make a startling discover, their cherished camera is somehow alive. A sense of wonder emerges that captures their imagination, and the camera takes them on an adventure that leads to a glint of hope amid a backdrop of a world falling apart. However, as time runs out to find the answers they crave, will the journey finally bring them back to each other or shatter any hopes of a reconciliation?
MIOmotion's first feature film is now complete! We're submitting into film festivals and hope to announce where and when you can see the film very soon.
"Optics ended up being a charming piece of indie filmmaking - with a heaping helping of warmth to melt the heart."
"The audience are taken on a journey that oozes of realism but also has a whimsy of fantastical joy to it."
