Headway is about how depression can make one feel like they're lifeless, hopeless and lost. But what happens when a depressed person decides they no longer wish to remain in that place? Our film is set in the woods. The woods signify the dark, labyrinth-like environment depression can force one to feel like they're trapped in. The dancers start in the woods in a lifeless state, until one dancer makes the choice to move forward. She sparks a flame in the others to try to find their way out together. Later, they find themselves standing at the beginning of a rough road, which signifies the start of a difficult journey ahead to something better. As the dancers travel this road, each dancer will strive to continue and move forward. But an unknown force will randomly drive some of them backward. This represents the feeling of "one step forward, two steps back". Finally, they reach a bright and expansive clearing. Some decide to go forward, and the rest go back to the woods from where they came. This represents the idea that on the road to recovery, one can be presented with a way to move forward and there will be others that will not have the courage to continue and retreat to what they've known, even if that place isn't what's best for them.
