Full Synopsis: In a secluded world of memories, Noah struggles to unravel his own place and the horrifying truth behind his father's anesthetized fate. Paralleled with a dizzying experience of drugs and hallucinations, will Noah let himself fall into his father's same fate, or diverge into the true path of existence? Director Patrick Y. Lee (aged 15) filmed for five days along the shores of Lake Ontario and the urban metropolis of Toronto. The film stars Toronto-area actors Nestor A. Grandal, Anthony Paul Babic, and Eric Kovalevskyy, and actress Lisa Robinson.
Existence is a film I planned throughout the end of my freshman year and summer, filmed for five days by the end of my freshman summer, and edited throughout my sophomore year. It was completed in April 2013. This film marks the first time I held a public audition call and worked with a completely professional cast.
