This film is about a teenager’s journey through the 5 stages of grief, and how she overcame minor tragedy. The main character’s goal is to reach the final stage; acceptance, and to finally conquer her grievances. The film itself is a metaphor– the depression scene is revolved around a bathtub– which depicts the feeling of drowning, falling, almost being frozen in time.

New England Connection: This film was created in Suffield, Connecticut; a state in New England. The beautiful foliage and environment in this state greatly contributed to our film, and in my opinion made the cinematography much higher quality. I have lived in New England my entire life, and have become accustomed to the continuously changing weather, beautiful scenery, and endless greenery. I would absolutely love to be nominated to win this category, and hope you consider my hard work in the making of this film.
