The Long Way Home / Sergi Pérez

One morning Joel wakes up to find his wife’s dog, Elvis, half dead. This forces him out of his home, something he has avoided for a long time. After leaving his keys inside he spends the day desperately trying to get back into the haven of his flat, which up until now had seemed like his personal prison, away from a world he fears and cannot forgive.
