The Truth

Posted by

A young girl keeps her diary and reaches out to you, using her cell phone, at the same time as she keeps a record of the truth.

She shares in her diary and with you – falling in love, hating her mother, hating her parents fighting, being afraid to grow up, being upset that they may move, loving the locket her aunt gives her and feeling loved in ways by her aunt that her parents can’t seem to muster, wishing the boy she is in love with would grow taller, confronting her disappointment that she has no relationship with him, sharing her glee at having a best friend and confiding in each other, coming to terms with growing up, letting go of the her first love, getting ready to move and more. She turns off her phone and closes her diary as they move, happy that she has found a secret way, using her precious locket, to hold on to herself emotionally as the movers come.

Directed by Barbara Becker Holstein (USA)
