      I think what happened was that they went sailing, but the ship caught fire and he got injured, but when he got back to the shore he was in a shock and didn't remember anything. Then, the familiarity of his own home triggered his memories and he rushed back to the beach, only to find his wife and son dead. At least that's how I understood it.

    From what the video told me is that it was this family who lived on a boat and went on a sail but there was a fire and the dad got stabbed and got stranded on an island and the boat crashes at their old house and the dad starts having amnesia and flashbacks of his family and realises the fire then he goes outside and finds them dead and cuts his wrists

    it'll much better if he actually was the ghost after sacrificing himself for his family, it might be not as original as the others, sixth sense etc., but it will still better than this bland end.

    I like this character's design. I wish I could see a Disney movie with a prince/lover to a Disney princess who looks like him instead of always having to see these pretty boy cucks. 😒
    I didn't like this short however, it wasn't bad, I am just already depressed as fuck enough. This was more on depression and coping with lost ones more than anything tp do with a "geist" (German for ghost). It would've made sense if he was the ghost haunting his wife and son and doesn't know or accept that he is dead. That's just me.
