3 Seconds
Closeup of a light particles

"I know it looks like nothing special.


It’s just empty space, air filling the room.


But what if it could be anything, anything else - let me set it up for you…"


Rita wants to tell you about her love story with Luis.

The greatest love story there ever was.

But someone won’t let her tell the story.

Which narrator should you believe?


3 Seconds questions what happens when you choose what to remember and when you’re still in love with your abuser.
