Just Between Us

Zoey, a popular high school girl, is hosting a sleepover with her friends, when they are interrupted by her ex-best friend, Arden, begging for help. Zoey is hesitant but with her friend's eyes on her she allows Arden, who has nowhere else to stay, to come in. The five girls, Zoey, Arde, Chelsy, Jay, and Sierra continue their night together with a game of trut or dare which unveils some of Zoey and Ardens romantic past, which is evidently a touchy subject. To change the subject, Chelsy is dared to egg her freshly ex boyfriend's house and the girls all set out to do so.

The five girls walk to his home with toilet paper and eggs in hand. They are in the heat of making her ex Sam regret what he has done when a light comes on upstairs and all of the girls scramble. Jay falls in a bush and the group is separated i the madness.

Zoey and Arden make it back home only to realize they are the only ones there. Arden can sense the tension and offers to leave, but Zoey confronts her. The two get in a fight about their friendship ending all those years ago after a kiss between them. They realize all of their issues were summed up to a simple miscommunication and the two had feelings for each other (and still do). As they lean in for a heated kiss, the rest of the group bursts through the door.

They all decide to go to sleep after an adrenaline filled but exhausting run from Chelsy's ex's house. Zoey and Arden are the last to fall asleep and reminisce on past happy moments together before finally embracing in a kiss and falling asleep in each other's arms.

When Zoey wakes up she finds Arden missing and runs outside to find her leaving. The two talk for a moment and reassure one another that they still feel the same way for each other. Zoey kisses Arden goodbye before returning back inside.

Director Biography - Julia Hyatt

Julia Hyatt grew up in Acworth, GA, excelling in every school subject, yet having no idea which career path to choose. She'd go from wanting to be a surgeon to being an astronaut, to an FBI agent, and so on. It wasn't until her school added a film program in her junior year of high school that Julia thought about pursuing film. She realized through filmmaking, she could both experience any of these other careers as well as impact people with her films just like others' films have impacted her.

Julia is currently attending the Savannah College of Art & Design, where she plans to earn a BFA in film and television, with a minor in acting. She specializes in screenwriting, directing, and acting, and she loves making narrative films that both entertain the audience as well as provide new perspectives.
