Our project is a 10 minutes short film about an aging couple, Joanna and Harry, who have had apart for decades to both commit suicide if either of them falls terminally ill. On their 50th wedding anniversary, after Joanna is diagnosed with dementia, they both relive their early memories from their wedding day as a final send-off and tribute to their life spent together, but as midnight slowly approaches, Harry beings to voice his doubts about if they are doing the right thing, and if they are prepared to die for each other.

The sarcastic, and loving husband of Joanna. At times his comments may come across as inappropriate, but they clearly come from a place of love, and are sometimes used as a defence mechanism to hide how scared he is of losing his wife. He would do anything for her, and can’t stand the thought of living a life without Joanna besides him.
Male, aged 65 to 80
