The Smartphone Films Series 4 In the realm of medical purgatory, where the mind roams free as the body is being repaired, two patients form an unusual bond. Between science and spirituality, consciousness and dream, the blossoming relationship leads one to think about the purpose of life, and another, the utter meaninglessness of it.
“Heartbeat” is Adrian’s first dramatic short story and Chinese language film. It was inspired by Rachmaninoff’s Prelude No.4 in D Major Op.23.
