After a major family emergency results in a mental breakdown, Renee lets living her own life go in order to take care of her ailing and abusive parents. This short dark comedy explores how an emotionally isolated elder millennial with no concept of “Self Care” and an inability to compete with her successful, more favored, brother, fares in dating, breaking traumatic cycles and standing up for her own needs while living under the roof of her two very dependent parents. “Renee” provides a short, twisted, glimpse into the roles women (and particularly women of color) take on as the primary caretakers in the family, often derailing their own emotional and social trajectories out of duty to their parents.

Directed by Demetrius Barry (USA)
