The film follows a young girl, Penny, who is suffering from severe depression and as a result, contemplating suicide. While attempting to run away from home, Penny meets an older girl, Grace, who shares a story with Penny that helps her to see her life in a new light. However, a bizarre change in circumstances leaves Penny in a life threatening situation that convinces her to finally ask for help.
Production is set to begin in Spring 2012, with approximately 8-10 days of filming. We are aiming to wrap by the end of May and put out a final product in June.
The $1,000 being raised is the absolute minimal amount necessary to produce the quality of work that Alex and Ryan are envisioning. It will be spent in the following ways:
- Special camera equipment ($600-$1,000)
- Food & travel expenses ($150)
- Clothing & Props ($100)
- Set design ($150)

No. On top of public donations, Ryan and Alex have made their own financial contributions and have also been given financial support from their families. Additionally, a fundraiser is being coordinated with the Peer Leadership Club at Wall High School, set for February.
No, but they have all been asked at least once. Except for this question, which Ryan thought up himself.
Of course. The screenplay is being shown to various sources to make sure our short film is accurate and appropriate. However, no video will be reviewed by any outside sources until the final product is completed. The only exception is unless any particular shots are being included that were not written into the original screenplay.
The film is starring Kristin Parker and Cari Fletcher, two students at Wall High School. Alex and Ryan both agree that Kristin and Cari have excellent acting experience that will allow them to accurately portray their characters and put forth genuine and powerful performances.
