Director Statement

"Upside Around" was crafted to project a little bit of all of us upon the main protagonist. Leslie, like many others, struggles to overcome the challenges life throws at her. We have all been Leslie at some point, or are currently in her shoes. I hope this film helps you identify those who are in need of help, and pushes us all as a society to be there for one another.
