A man wakes up in his apartment with a hazy memory of the night before. He’s greeted in bed by a mysterious woman who keeps saying, “Hello.” But she seems to know far more about his life than he ever could have told her in one night. And as the rats gnaw mercilessly from within the walls, she has a few bold and shocking answers as to why he’s so afraid. (Running time: 22 minutes)

From last summer. The remarkable @emilycarding recording dialogue for "Hello," which was released yesterday. We were forced to move into the hall after being bombarded with noisy air conditioners from other apartments. And Emily delivered an incredible performance despite the heat!
