About this submission

I've always had difficulties as a college student with grappling my passion of filmmaking with my parents' pragmatic expectations. This story is one of a teenager dealing with similar issues in the midst of the chaos that comes with growing into adulthood. With a stylized depictions of mental health woven into a human story of last-minute SAT studies, I took the chance to tell a personal story through the lens of a psychological thriller. This story means a lot because I believe it not only depicts struggles of mine, but hopefully other young adults that end up watching it.
