Short Narrative
USA | 5 minutes | 2015

We spend our entire lives looking forward to the possibilities adulthood will bring, fully unprepared for its drab reality. For Scarlet, adulthood has amounted to lessons in disappointment and a quarry of apathy. A chance meeting with an unlikely lifeline pulls her out of her self-centered depths, showing her that the only way to survive adulthood is to become a kid again.
