Ella was a young girl when she witnessed a traumatic event which continues to haunt her.  Kay is the psychologist who has been trying to help her.  As Kay is ready to recommend that Ella stay hospitalized for continued observation, Ella keeps telling Kay that she is not understanding what Ella is telling her.  When Kay starts to really listen, she realizes that what is haunting Ella may not only be in her mind.

This was an intense, character driven short film.  The simple set, sound, and lighting created a ambiance which supported the strained relationship between the primary characters.  The little flashbacks were just enough to build tension and allow the audience’s imagination to take over, without giving away too much.

Overall, I though this was a well executed supernatural horror short and was very glad to have the opportunity to see it.  Follow the Facebook page for an opportunity to view this short film.
