Synopsis: 
I’m Dead, Bro is a short film about two social media influencers, DAVIS and STU, who, after witnessing a murder, are being chased down by an unknown assailant. While on the run, Stu has the only working phone and Davis is desperate to call for help. However, rather than immediately calling the cops, Stu goes full vlogger mode and live-streams the situation. Things take a turn for the worse when Stu disappears and Davis must act quickly to find help.

Night camp. A ruptures discussion. Knowledge vs. desire of one. The subject matter both share if of spiritual nature. Their language is filled with contradictions. Simplicity & wisdom within is precisely what he hopes to posses so badly. A place indeed she so naturally in hold of. Yet, logic speaks louder then words and, yes he understand the truth, but the pride cannot be swallowed & ignored so easily. She feels nothing but pity for him. A goddess vs a jealous God. A human fight that's been engraved in us for such a long time. How is it to be addressed if not in a harsh way of revealing it true nature.

Character 1 Description: 
Innately, she is charged with wisdom. Nature of which is so pure & quiet. Connected to the whispers of nature, she transcends human wants & desire, since she knows how false those are. A temporary substitute, yet nothing else. Literally, she speaks & listens to ghost of past & present. Never they leave, one only has to stop & listen to their whispers. She finds gratitude in their presence. Yet nor they, nor she owe anything to one another. Just & simply, it is a shared experience. Experience of which - he is so jealous of. Blinded by his pride.

A devil in a sheep's cloth. Every step & attempt of his is measured for self egotistic fulfillment. A desire to have what he doesn't. Not even knowing how it to be comprehended afterwards, yet such desire is stronger then logic. He confronts her in her believes. For him it is all mundane. He doesn't believe in magic, since what possibly can it / will it bring to him & others like him. Aka majority. He is not in touch with spirits, nor does he believe in them. His lies are aimed to open himself to them & rob them of their power. He will not reveal his true face, but she is witter, smarter & quicker. Once she glimpses into his true face, inevitably, he is left without a choice but to vanish such knowledge out of her memory.
