A socially insecure teenage girl begins to suspect the unimaginable — that her most personal, embarrassing thoughts may not be as private as she had hoped.
writer. director. actor.
While I have always been obsessed with movies, I have realized over time that there are very few examples on the screen of a true experience of being a female in this world. The depictions of strong women protagonists were often impossibly strong and sometimes less easy to relate to than the ridiculously weak ones. They made the younger me want to be more like the character, and less like myself. There are many reasons why I am on this path, and one that stands out to me right now as I embark on my thesis is the strong desire to connect with a woman on screen; to share what the strangeness, uncertainty, and vulnerability of being a human being feels like, at least for me. As I am writing, directing, and acting in this film, I will also finally have a character that, in this case, literally looks like me.
