The musical love story reflects some eerie images which include one character being a human photobooth as a strip of wallet sized pictures are ejected from the body.
A 20-something bride appears to be distraught on their wedding night, wearing white
lingerie, her face is smeared in black mascara after plenty of crying.
In contrast to the downs, the characters can also be seen dancing and smiling together as they enjoy teenage years, adult unions and elderly companionship.
