Truman & Cooper, director of the super vid for Kid Wise's Hope, have delivered another narrative piledriver to partner Alternate World by Son Lux.

Largely shot in Normandy, the melancholic promo tells the story of a man who stumbles upon his ex-girlfriend on a train. This chance meeting reawakens some emotional and intense memories about their past relationship, contrasting with his present reality. There was clearly a lot of happiness, love, and strong physical attraction. And then it all went horribly wrong...

It turned out that the actors - Eva Menis-Mercier and Mathias Vives – have known each other a long time, and they used their familiarity to explore some deep feelings. The result is one hell of a rollercoaster...
