"Ruba Nadda's [short] films take a fly-on-the-wall-perspective, peering briefly into the lives of people who would otherwise be ignored. [...] Mothers scream at daughters, lovers deliver parting words and solitary individuals face public embarrassment. Everyone always seems poised on the edge of an emotional cliff, a short step from a terminal plunge. People say regrettable things, sometimes painfully true but just as often tragically false. Nadda cuts out all of the chaff to focus directly on those moments when decisions are made which cannot be undone."
