Olive is a dramatic relationship film that explores betrayal, heartbreak, and chance encounters. The film was inspired by the song O Mistress Mine written by William Shakespeare and performed by Caleb Eberhardt of the hip hop/jazz duo Quincy Vidal. The film serves as a silhouette into the everyday day romance. It’s goal was to give a minuscule glimpse into the mundane day to day occurrences of a relationship that often lead to moments of complete chaos and utter lack of trust. The title Olive is a metaphor for the situation that these four people find themselves in.
