Director Statement

Bethany is a character who reminds us that growing up can be confusing, heartbreaking and downright torturous. The films takes place in the early 2000s when "heroin chic" was the ideal body type girls aspired to achieve. In this time capsule, I wanted to tell a story that demonstrates how the media, peers and family members help shape a child's self-esteem, and show how kids may seek out that unmet validation in all the wrong places.
