This is a soundtrack that builds up from a simple, yet quite slow, piano and string chord sequence. It has a mournful and expressive feel which is built upon from the melancholic piano melody that appears in the second section. It initially depicts sorrow and despondency, however, with the addition of high strings and a delicate piano melody later in the piece it brings a hopeful vibe and a subtle optimism that things will get better. The last section features an electric guitar melody and the ending is short and clean. This would work in a film setting as a soundtrack or theme. Sad and somber, yet hopeful. [Tempo: Slow / 65 BPM]
