Maverick Sabre's heartfelt Breathe is matched with an impressive video directed by Johny Mourgue, making something of a comeback into promos.

Sabre's lyrics are mirrored by an anguished man (played by Chris Coghill) obsessed with the girl he left behind (Gemma Chan) and trying to get back to her. There's an overriding mood of regret and remorse, and a tangible sense of not appreciating what you have until its gone. 

But has the damage already been done? 


"We wanted to create something that was very linear but kept the viewer guessing till the end. The cast was everything in terms of fulfilling a simple yet poignant narrative. We were very lucky and grateful to acquire the services of Mr. Coghill and Gemma Chan."
