What happens when two people fall in love? They become interconnected and fully twined together. Sometimes being in love is suffocating as two people overcommit and feel stuck. I wanted to portray a negative aspect of falling in love and how it can leave two people feeling like they have to be together at the expense of their own happiness. Commitment, connection, attachment; falling in love draws two people to a state of obsessiveness.
