Fragile is a love letter to the postman.
At times invisible, often unappreciated, though a constant presence in our lives, accompanying us through the highs and lows, braving the forces of nature. The gift that keeps on giving.
The narrative follows an affable postman whose daily delivery routine is broken by a simple encounter, creating a chain reaction with life altering consequences.
Filmed in black and white, Fragile is inspired by the heroes of the silent movie era. It engages with levity themes such as the effect of working conditions on mental health, as relevant today as in yesteryear.
