Taking place after a break-up, "The Forever" gazes at a lost love object through the eyes of someone attempting to reconstruct the memory of the relationship. Disoriented in time and space, the main character, who we never see, but instead see through, re-imagines conversations the way she hopes they existed.

The Forever is Episode 3 in the video art trilogy, This is More Than Love I Feel Inside, in which Jillian Peña traces a queer relationship from inception to demise. Focusing on the interior and imaginary worlds of the partners, we glimpse the ultimate impossibility of true communication or connection between the girls. The work's characters are all played by Jillian, creating a juggle between the autoerotic and homoerotic, the self-reflexive and the self-obsessed.
