This film came about as we encountered more and more peers who fell into the evil ways of temptation, set upon them by none other than the devil himself. Using sneaky methods through the dark arts and persuasion, he has managed to turn many innocent youth into cigarettes addicts. Unfortunately the media portrays smoking as a "cool thing to do", specifically targeting the younger generations, without clearly presenting all of its harms. We decided to create a short film through which the viewers directly experience the shocking reality of a typical high school student addicted to cigarettes. It is often the case that parents, let alone the students' themselves, are unable to see the harm that smoking has on one's health - physical, mental and emotional. We see a dramatic turn of events in the student's life after being unable to complete a simple physical education activity and fainting helplessly in hopes that this will serve as a wake up call for many young smokers and non-smokers.
Protected by God's almighty and ever loving armor, we are able to defeat the evil's that smoke causes and avoid its harms by not giving into the devil's temptation who's only motive is to watch us crumble and auto destruct. By standing firm against the evil powers of the devil we are able to see through his tactics and avoid situations in which we would be the most impacted negatively.
