About this submission

Twenty-seven-year-old Tina has never left her town, and her Mamá, hasn’t left her room since last March. Tina’s day-to-day includes: preparing for teaching at a three-star dance studio, greeting her anti-mask neighbor, and leaving Mamá’s meals outside her bedroom door.

Tina’s structured routine takes an unexpected turn when a mysterious new person moves into the neighborhood. After writing letters back and forth, the two masked pen pals meet, embarking on a spontaneous moment of in-person connection.

"meet me with your mask on" is about intimacy, transformation, and the power to keep dancing on.
