A young man sees changing numbers floating above the heads of people around him and suddenly recognizes a woman who can do the same. But a tragic twist forces him to realize how the numbers—and what they tell you about people—can be a curse.

Robert Hloz directed Numbers, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. What starts as a conversation about a supernatural ability between two strangers evolves into something more and in an instant, we see the main character feel the weight of his power and grow up a little on the screen.
