DOORS is a psychological, dramatic short that follows Zoey, a troubled young woman fighting for her life in a coma. While in this surreal subconscious state, Zoey opens three doors she couldn’t bear to unlock in the physical world as a last-ditch effort to overcome things she’s been struggling with inside for so long.
