A young woman suffering from trauma-induced memory loss finds herself spiraling dangerously out of control as the impending anniversary of the event nears, threatening to destroy her carefully crafted veneer of normalcy, her relationships and even her life.
HANNAH, a young teacher and sole survivor of a school shooting, suffers from PTSD and trauma-induced memory loss. Rather than acknowledge her issues, she puts on a brave face, insisting “Everything’s Fine”, while attempting to hide her symptoms from her family.
As the hours tick down to the one-year anniversary of the event, Hannah finds herself spiraling dangerously out of control. Plagued by fragmented, disjointed flashbacks, her panic attacks, isolation, and self-harming behaviors only increase, threatening to destroy her carefully crafted veneer of normalcy. Cracks also emerge in her family members. Her parents, RACHEL and DAVID, and her wife PAIGE all manifest varying degrees of PTSD.
