Awards/Selected Nominations

“In this touching drama, Tina must make the choice of whether to allow her abusive father back into her life. In her directorial debut, Andrea Fantauzzi creates a magical little film, gets the most out of her actors, and excels in bringing this story from script to screen, in her unique, sensitive way.

Very well produced (Lydia Anderson), beautifully shot (Christopher Commons), and well-performed by Katie Coryell Hall (Tina) and her on-screen young brother Cam Burns (Sam). The flashback scenes shed light on Tina’s heartbreaking story, and create a powerful plot, that keeps the viewer engaged throughout.” – FilmCon Awards
