    Brief synopsis

    Driven into isolation by alcohol and leeching friends and confused by a distorted view on woman, sex and relationships, a desperate artist loses himself in the alluring illusion of a perfect love. A love, free of judgment and expectations, that releases dreams and desires that lay forever dormant. But our hero’s past looms over his happiness like a dark cloud, soon to erupt.
    PERFECT LOVE is a hallucinogenic drama about a man's attempt to cope with loneliness and isolation.
