In The Silence
When failed attempts at medication and therapy lead to the return of her imaginary sister, Eva must decide if Leah is harmless or sinister.
"In the Silence is a powerful and well-crafted exploration of a girl who has dealt with mental illness starting from a very young age. The short film script succeeds at literally getting inside Eva’s mind as she attempts to reconcile who Leah is and whether she can live without her. Also, the way the writer juxtaposes both Eva and her mother dealing with “silence” (in Eva’s case coping without Leah’s voice guiding her, and in Bethany’s case not having Leah) is both clever and heartbreaking. Based on the material presented here, this script has potential to be a really gripping short film." — ScreenCraft Short Screenplay Contest (Feedback, 2019)
