The Old Man Next Door

Matiu, a war veteran who struggles with PTSD and agoraphobia, is unable to leave the safety of his home since
his wife’s passing. Shy student Yvonne from next door, his
only visitor in self-imposed isolation, struggles with her
own mental health. Distraught when her boyfriend leaves
her, she stops taking her medication and soon spirals out
of control. Matiu is the only witness to her descent into
madness, which poses a threat to her life. He must find
the strength within to cross the threshold and save her, or
remain a prisoner of his fear…and his conscience.
