Namaste

Anna, a 24-year-old artist goes through basic problems in life, has anger issues and suffers from a creative block and decides to go into isolation and indulges herself in art while feeling empty from inside, angry and grieved at the same time. Due to frustration she spills blue color all over the canvas and goes through an episode/flashback sequence where she is drowning in pain and then goes through weird and absurd experiences or a “Bad Trip” and also encounters with her alter ego. Her “Bad Trip” neutralizes a bit and she has gotten rid of her alter ego and starts to finally enjoy her own company. It changes into a “Good Trip” when she is in the nature and sways with the flowers and trees and finds herself in the middle of a flower field before she opens her eyes in her art studio.
