Review by Kierston Drier

A four minute mystery drama, BEYOND walks us through the last moments of a woman’s life after a traumatic accident. We aren’t given much information, except that, while in the ambulance, something is very wrong.

We see the piece almost totally through her eyes- until the close and never reopen. But we do see the seen once more, this time through a different, newer pair of eyes. A heartbreaking twist ends the piece.

For being simply and efficiently shot, this piece packs a stronger emotional punch than anticipated. It will certainly leave you with a strong feeling- the true test of any dramatic piece.
