Take Me Home Poster

Lily is a long-suffering insomniac, trapped between a traumatic past and an uncertain future. Her best friend Emma pulls Lily from her seclusion for Emma's first art exhibition. During that evening, Lily will have to confront Edgar, a mysterious man, and reconnect with her old friends Emma and Jansen.
At the end of the night, nothing will remain the same. Lily must make the decision to either move forward with her life, or stay mired in the past.

The Beginning

Soon Enough (2012) Poster

Take me home is part of a trilogy of short movies, which revolves around the theme of dreams, throughout different stages of life, from the childhood to adulthood. The project started in 2012, with Soon Enough, which symbolized the age of innocence, with little Lily, who is learning how to overcome her fear in an imaginary cosmic world.

A truly global film

Our 38 person crew (Production and post production included) hailed from 18 different countries and we had at least one person from every continent. Besides Antarctica...

We Can Do It

Not only the story is centered around Lily, a female character, but also 75% of the crew was female.

Johns Hopkins Film Festival short review

Posted by the Johns Hopkins Film Festival on their Facebook page:
"Last in the program is TAKE ME HOME, a Canadian film from director Kim Tran. It shows a woman trying to recover from a past heartbreak. We were most intrigued by the unreliable narrator aspect of the film; it adds a really interesting dimension to the narrative."
