Belly Button, short film from David Hewitt

The film follows six strangers who we see at various states of thought and possible change. A narrator guides us through the story as we cut between their journeys. The narrator provides a unique window to their thoughts and feelings leading up to one moment. These thoughts vary between poignancy, humour and states of wonder. The film builds to an unusual occurrence, which affects everyone. Each character's arc and story is brought to an end, some for the better, and some for the worse.
