Riley Blakeway explores the grieving process with great sensitivity in her video for Kodaline's Wherever You Are, featuring an affecting performance by Australian actress-model Teresa Oman.

Blakeway builds the story through a fluid timeline that takes us into the mind of the young woman as she travels alone through Morocco. Scenes of happiness with her boyfriend evolve into the horror of his sickness, and her helplessness. These memories intersect the fascinating reality of her journey through an vibrant land, which provides distraction but also the opportunity to reflect.

Oman goes through a gamut of emotion during her restless wandering, and the range of scenes captured in David Wright's luminous photography adds weight to that sense of a young woman urgently seeking catharsis, a respite from personal anguish.
