Film Origin

“Scars” is a short film born from a writing prompt response by user u/wercwercwerc. It received over a million views, tens of thousands of upvotes, and was gilded ten times.






On the surface, “Scars” is about a young cadet learning that there are two sides to every story. However, the real story goes much deeper in discussing the value of truth, honesty, and how people judge one another based on their physical appearance. “Scars” forces the viewer to put themselves into this unfamiliar world and wonder where they would fit.
