About the project
LOCKLINEOnce a daughter of a commune member feels neglected, she decides to take surpising actions to obtain more love and attention.


In this short film ‘A normal life’ we follow the mother ‘Melissa’, she is living in the aftermath of her daughter's doings. Melissa is enthralled with the lifestyle in a small hippie commune.

The daughter blamed her mother as the actual culprit for her sudden actions, because she put the interest of the commune before the needs of her child, Anandi. Anandi is ashamed of living in the commune, the weird meditations, odd rituals and the free sex.

The pent up emotions combined with a huge amount of shame are to much to handle for Anandi. In the hope to get more attention and love from her mother, she undertakes huge actions.

The mother is seen as the example of “education gone wrong” by many people, and so she suffers from all the people staring at her and calling her names. Anandi convince the people; it is all because of her mother, her behavior and deeds are a side effect of the ‘strange’ education she had, she feels neglected.

Is Melissa perpetrator or victim…?

Loneliness, neglect and hopelessness defines this short film. Anandi’s motive for her actions become more clear bit by bit the story progresses.
