Director Statement

After learning that 1 in 4 female service members reports Military Sexual Trauma from their service combined with the startling reality that my home state of Nevada has a "significantly higher rate of veteran suicide than any other state," per the VA, I was compelled to tell a story on the issue. As I discussed the statistics with friends and colleagues I was given support to make the film, starting with a seed grant from the UNLV College of Fine Arts followed by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council and National Endowment for the Arts. I am very proud that we have an active duty Army reservist playing the lead role and a Vietnam veteran playing her father, in addition to more veterans behind the camera.

If you are not aware, the Veterans Administration frowns on the word suicide, even though the public and media tend to use it with regularity. But we took this information to heart and the word is never uttered anywhere in the film.

Thank you for viewing and considering our short film. We hope it makes you think and feel.
