About this submission

I chose to tell this story to create a film that would resonate with people within my community and to represent their life experiences. I wanted to be able to initiate a discussion centred around growing up with toxic parents which create a potentially abusive environment. My film’s central point is about the toxic parental relationship and how it is disguised, the latter half also showcases the importance of mental health. Childhood experiences can lead to "dead rabbits,” expectations are pushed upon you from a young age and personal passions are often set aside, and the house burning symbolises freedom.
