This short film is about the life of this girl, it starts from when she was in infant all the way to adulthood. Throughout the video and her life she plays this game called "Perfection". There is a timer and you have to put the pieces in to the correct holders. In the video it keeps flashing back from events in her life then back to her playing the game. The woman had fit all the pieces in the holders, except for the one missing piece.
This short film teaches us that perfection can't ever be achieved. As hard as we try to be perfect, it will never happen. All we can do is be the best that we can be. We all want to believe that we are perfect, but we arent, none of us are. We are only human and sometimes we will make mistakes. We have our own strengths and weaknesses, but God created us to be like this for a reason. If we were all perfect, we would never make mistakes, therefore we would have nothing to learn from. There would be nothing to work towards, because we would already have achieved all that we could. In the game in the film there is a button to turn the timer off after you have completed the game. If we turned off the "timer" in our life because we achieved everything, there would be nothing to live for.
This short film has made me come to terms with the idea of not being perfect. Sometimes if I make a mistake i get embarrassed by it, but no one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes. I always wanted to be able to do everything perfect, and I would try to cover up my mistakes. I accept my own strengths and weaknesses, and I accept that I can only be the best I can be, and thats all that matters.
