How do I tell stories that need to be told but people are afraid to tell, I asked myself.

This film is not about statistics, or science, or theories, or practices. It’s a documentary about mental health and sharing our stories so others will understand they are not alone. It’s about what’s happened to us, what will happen to our children, and breaking cycles that are killing us in dark places.
