A Story about Mourning

What extent would you go to see the person you love again?

Bright Eyes is a dark comedy which follows four near-perfect strangers who are brought together through various circumstances and end up spending an alcohol-laced evening connecting with each other.

They discover over the course of wine, whiskey and music that their meeting was not accidental and perhaps is far more sinister than they could have imagined.
