The goal of the edit was to show Teresa’s dream world and the escalation of her illness mirrored in Mr Stork, her imaginary friend. Also, that Teresa has a hard time staying in reality, but ultimately accepts her fate and joins her friend Mr Stork.

I edited the dream world with an experimental style, in high contrast to the reality segments.
