Synopsis Jae and Him were inseparable as teenagers. Their bond was so strong that it went far beyond just a normal friendship. However, like many schoolyard friendships, the two eventually had a falling out and stopped seeing each other. A decade later, the wedding of a common friend reunites the two, bringing back the hostilities that drove them apart in the first place. When Him gets drunk at the wedding party, Jae is asked to drive him home. A simple night drive across the city turns into a journey to their complicated past as they make detours to old landmarks and we see the events that led to their fallout. Will they be able to bury the hatchet, and will they be able to continue their friendship from where they left off?

Remarks shared after Festival visit

“Being able to be in Cannes, to be a part of this prestigious event is just mind-blowing. Festival de Cannes – Short Film Corner was an eye-opener for me. Not only did I see international high quality productions, I was greatly inspired from the exchange and discussions with other foreign filmmakers as well as producers, which would definitely be beneficial to my future creative work. ”

— Shared by Wong Yee-lam Norris, director of From Here to There after attending Short Film Corner, the 66th Festival de Cannes in France, under the sponsorship of NAE.
