The Letter E

A short movie musical about love, meaninglessness, and a 14-year-old girl named Eleanor who loves the letter E.

Eleanor eats eggs and edamame, studies economics and ecology, and has three best friends who are all named Emily. Everything is great until she finds out that her boyfriend's name isn't Ed -- it's Frederick.

This is a musical comedy about teenagers that goes beyond the tropes of high school musicals. It delves into nihilism, belief systems and the stubbornness of the human condition.
