Eat Your Heart Out
Directed by Abby Pierce
USA | 11 min | 2019
In Wallace’s world, falling in love means giving your heart away. Literally. With her wedding only days away, Wallace must retrieve her heart from Douglas, her first love, and put it back into her chest before walking down the aisle. But when Douglas reveals that he cut her heart to pieces with a butterknife and scattered it around the city, the ex-lovers revisit their old haunts to collect the pieces of Wallace’s broken heart.
