A month ago, Mikaela attempted suicide.


Now, she is transitioning back to school, reconnecting to her friends and teachers despite the distance she feels from them. But Mikaela is far from the only one struggling. Everyone is feeling disconnected. And everyone is blind to the support that is much closer than they realize.


An ensemble cast drama for high school about mental health, social isolation, and grief, with a hint of magical realism.
