The story behind the film

I made this film to explore my complex relationship with depression and ultimately help me cope with how it affects my life. It’s a film about miscommunication, trauma, death, and the often blurred lines between our personal and professional lives. All through the lens of a character that desperately needs to open up, let other people in, and allow herself to be vulnerable.

I hope you enjoy.
