Short Film Spotlight: Plum

From writer-director Blake Snawder, Plum is a sleek and sexy new 9-minute short film that explores the blossoming of a romantic relationship between two young male models.

Isaac Dice Vega and Hunter Swindle star in the film as Caelum and Lyle. The film looks at the stages of their relationship as the pair spend a fleeting summer together while working in the fashion industry. Throughout the short film, we hear continuous audio, a reading by the lead actors of an original poem written by the director.

At the same time, the film jumps ahead in time, giving us quick glimpses into the progression of the love story and its ultimate decay as the summer comes to a close.

Using fruit as a metaphor to reflect on relationships that turn from sweet to sour, Plum is a skillfully made short about how love can grow less delicious over time.

Watch a short trailer for Plum below. The film is now available on Dekkoo.
