A fictional narrative film about a girl who communicates differently from others.
WHAT IS THIS PROJECT ABOUT?
This is a fictional narrative film about communication, told through the eyes of a young girl who struggles socially, physically, and psychologically with a Speech disorder known as Selective Mutism. This disorder prohibits Sydney from comfortably expressing herself. At home, her mother tries to accommodate Sydney's needs, but often makes the situation more tense for both of them. In order to escape her social anxiety, Sydney retreats to her vivid imagination, as a way of manipulating her own perception of reality. This reality makes it more difficult for Sydney to communicate with others, therefore resulting in meeting with a Speech Language Pathologist, who takes an empathetic approach when dealing with her insecurities and her struggles with speech.
