Metamorphism is the change in a rock due to heat or pressure. Similar to rocks, humans change due to intense pressure or heat. For humans, these pressures may include family, school, wealth, fame, and ourselves. This experimental film is an expression of my own overwhelming pressures and how I may change due to them.
