Speak Out

A widowed mother takes her depressed teenage daughter to therapy where (after months of struggling) she let's out every emotion and grieving thought about her father's death. Then, cinematically, she explores her happy memories using her imagination to eventually move on and block the trauma from the past. Grace becomes so much happier and continues to go regularly. The moral of the story is to validate your feelings and talk out loud.

Director Statement

This is my first project that I've written, organised, casted, directed, acted, edited and produced. It was a productive hobby for the summer holidays with my friends and family! I'm really pleased with how its turned out, thank you everyone! This first project was like a pilot episode in a season and my first practise to get experience to prepare me!
