Mission Statement

Skylar’s struggles within her own mind are something most people can relate to. We want our film to emphasize how different everyone’s mental health journey can be and normalize the idea that it’s ok not to be ok.

The Story

Skylar Sullivan is a determined, up and coming record executive at Sunshine Records where she works alongside her good friend Charles. They’re in the process of finishing their artist, Mikayla’s, first album when she is tragically murdered. Skylar, having witnessed the murder, feels responsible and begins to struggle to return to her everyday life. Fighting an internal battle, she attempts to go about her regular routine and putup a front for her friends and family. As time passes, Skylar seems to be getting everything she ever dreamed of—but what is she hiding from everyone? In the end, true life prevails and all is revealed surrounding Skylar’s unique coping techniques.
