Short Film (2011)
Logline: An imaginative young girl frees a beaten boy from the clutches of her bullying brother, and is granted her secret wish.
Synopsis: A young girl (Essie) turns to the fantastical world of her imagination to escape her emotionally-abusive home. Her father, a veteran, committed suicide after witnessing the horrors of war in Afghanistan. Her older brother (Braden) is now lashing out with anger and violence at the world around him.
One day, Essie oversees Braden and his friends beating a frail teenage boy (Sebastian) and imprisoning him in a cage. Essie rescues Sebastian, telling him she is a fairy princess. When Sebastian promises to grant her a wish, she discovers that he’s more than he appears. Her secret wish comes true, but at a dark price.
