The movie follows the story of teenagers Allie and Christian, high-achieving students severely challenged by pressures both at home and school. We join them in a difficult journey as they search for answers and The Road Back. The film was written and directed by Faith Bishop, starring Natalie Johnson and Josh Devou. The story was created by: Faith Bishop, Kelsey Byther, Haley Comeau, Shannon Folsom and Marissa Grifasi. Music by Lucas Holmes.
Based on true-life experiences of teenagers, the movie explores the stigma attached to mental health issues among youth living with anxiety and depression. The youth creators want the film to raise awareness and change attitudes about people living with mental illness. Ultimately, they would like to see people recognize the signs of anxiety and depression and seek out help quickly, as research shows the sooner an individual receives treatment the better the outcomes are long-term.
