Unsettled is a short dramatic comedy
that follows Robert, a dissatisfied, middle-aged art teacher who tries to teach
one of his students, Charlie, not to make the same mistakes he did by helping
him get the girl he likes. However, Robert ends up being the student in this relationship, as he learns from Charlie the importance of self-honesty. The film explores the themes of the cruelty of fate, lost love, personal failure and the tragedy that befalls aspiration and the compromises of reality. It’s a touching
story about regret and acceptance that is loosely influenced by an art teacher
who was very inspirational to me; he fostered creativity and new experiences,
and always regarded his students with equality and respect.
