Set in a dystopian future, a nurse Mary battles with her desire to let her voice be heard and the fear of imprisonment that will occur if she utters more than 8 words a day. In this short drama, the camera will often be hand held and close on Mary, oppressively as she struggles from day to day. Wide angle lenses used in extreme closes ups, showing how our characters are trapped in their daily lives, desperate to escape and unable to say whatever is on their mind.
Imagine if speaking this sentence out loud could lead to your imprisonment. Locked away never to be seen again. The freedom to voice our thoughts where and when we wish is something we too often take for granted. 8 imagines a terrible future where that freedom has been taken away.
