Director Statement

Abby Palen is a great friend of mine and I knew they had a powerful story to tell. I set out to tell it as honestly as possible in hopes to shed light on a disorder many people in the performing arts industry struggle with as well as inspire those to use art as a way to conquer their past and move their own mountain.
