After a major family emergency results in a mental breakdown, Renee lets living her own life go in order to take care of her ailing and abusive parents. This dark comedy short explores how an emotionally isolated elder millennial with no concept of “Self Care” fares against dating, competing with her brother for her parents love, and rediscovering the identity she lost the second her dad got sick.
The director Demetrius Barry tells us; “...Life can put a whooping on you for damn sure”. It’s nice to imagine that if you do right and you’re a good person, naturally success and happiness are on the horizon. Thats not always the case. We wanted to illustrate with as light a heart as possible, how easily a dream can be sidetracked, a spirit can be crushed, and a heart can be buried, even when you’re trying to do good. Renee is dedicated to the good guys in last place. Protect your energy and fight to let it shine.
