A piece of paper can be transformed into a beautiful rose or into a ball of crumpled paper, the same way dreams can come true or become terrible nightmares.

Shot in Super 16mm, the original version of this short film was created for a cinema class in the University of Puerto Rico. While the original version was edited digitally from a standard resolution transfer of the film, this revisited edition offers a reinterpretation of the original story, re-edited from scratch using nothing but the 16mm silent footage accompanied by The Swan Lake Suit No 1 composed by Tchaikovsky.
