Ben Roe's video for rising singer-songwriter Hattie Whitehead, is the story of a young man tortured by grief - played by Fionn Whitehead, the singer's brother.

Haunted by the loss of his best friend, the young man replays a day that they had spent together - and finally finds a way to come to terms with the tragedy.

Roe ratchets up the tension by intercutting flashbacks of happier times with the present day sadness. It's a sensitively handled piece for a video that was inspired by the sad loss of the Whitehead siblings' mother.
