About this submission

I wanted to tell this story because it portrays an experience I lived through. I enjoy filmmaking because of its ability to portray raw human emotions and connections and that is what inspires me. When making this film, I wanted to create a story that was unique but simultaneously relatable. As a college student, I know that mental health issues are prominent in young adults; I've seen the pain and anguish eat at people. I chose to tell this story because I wanted to show the other side, that it's possible to find peace and happiness.
