In these shorts, one can watch as our protagonists find community and support through unlikely friends and family.

Self-reflection is important, but understanding one's community is an important element of that. In one film, Olive relates her journey from isolation to better mental health and self-care. In another short, when a girl looks to isolate herself, an unseen friend reaches out with help. In the last film, we hear a personal story of grief and learn how the interactions we may deem insignificant can play a huge part in how we live our lives. We are only as strong as those we choose to surround ourselves with.
