A man finds himself trapped in an empty room again. Using a piece of wallpaper, he constructs a model of the room that seems to somehow match the original. Can this model help him find a backdoor to freedom? The Back Room is a short film based on a music video by the band I AM CEREALS. It is a detailed puppet animation about the possibility that remains, when nothing seems to go right.
