Medictator - Lockdown Short


Medictator is about a young guy’s search for inspiration to meditate in the ‘comfort’ of his bachelor pad and throughout the course of his quest being drawn away by explicit distractions that are ultimately subliminal. Away from home during the hushed countrywide #lockdown when the noise is intrinsic, will he be able to realize what is inspiration if not the lack of distraction?
