After a one-year break from his heartwarming series of voice note shorts, Egyptian filmmaker Ashraf Hamdi is back with another one.

“A Voice Note Series” is a series of short films; written, directed, and shot by Hamdi, where the story is normally narrated in the form of voice notes. Voice note number 14, titled “Only if Time Was..”, follows the story of an almost relationship, exploring the what-ifs of unrequited love.

It might have started with something beautiful, an imaginary, magical relationship, but it surely left our hearts broken. Most importantly, it’s definitely relatable to many, and that’s what we love the most about Hamdi’s voice notes, one can resonate with them.

If you’re not familiar with the series, we highly recommend you’d binge on the 13 old voice notes. You can find them here, along with the rest of Hamdi’s impeccable work.
