Director Statement

False Conjecture was created to express the college experience through a more niche perspective. Jamie, a shy girl with a defensive personality, must learn to embrace the somewhat odd appearing college culture. It's once she has let go of her preconceived notions, and the strain of her prior romantic relationship that she can truly be happy in this new environment. Living in the moment, rather than clutching onto the past. In this way her story is meant to be a lesson to others to fight past their own internal struggles so that they may grasp their own happiness.
