SaMo INDIE says:
This student film from the Florida State University College of Motion Picture Arts tracks a petty-thief that finds herself in a budding romance with a suicidal girl from the other side of the proverbial tracks. The film cast two excellent actresses, Megan Sousa-Meyer and Kristina Mezhenskaya, who bring an honest, and seemingly effortless chemistry to the screen. Director Nia Imani makes the most of DP Che Espiritu’s free spirited camera work, weaving a strong dramatic narrative short that feels like a mature, well-rounded effort on all fronts.
