LOGLINE: THE HAMLET SYNDROME is a powerful portrait of a vibrant young Ukrainian generation, the first one born after the collapse of the Soviet Union, shaped by the Maidan Revolution of 2013, empowered by political change and scarred by war.
SYNOPSIS: Justin Andrew Davis writes, directs, and stars in his own short film about a man consumed by an eating disorder, manifested as a slick, toxic companion (Ryan Wesen) who lingers on his every move. Over the course of 24 hours, he nearly sabotages his standing at his job and his relationship with his romantic partner (Peyton Michelle Edwards), all while pushing his body to dangerous extremes, giving us a look into how actions motivated by poor self-image can threaten every aspect of a person’s life.
