Echoes is a short film project that shows the life of a young woman named Dalia who falls head over heals in love with a young handsome sailor, but soon she gets aware of his missing and so she is waiting and only focusing on her loved one to come back to her. Until her mind plays tricks with her and so in her sleep a woman seems to appear and to steal the things that mean the most to her, only for her no notice that they are also gone in real life after her waking up.
