TO BLEND OR TO DREAM

A group of immigrant youth decide how to respond when politician 'Donald Cruz' comes to speak at their high school.

Amelias Closet is a coming of age story about an 11-year-old girl from a low income background and lives with her hard working single father. At school, she is heavily bullied and often left feeling powerless. In attempt to reclaim a sense of power, she steals from the kids bullying her but shamefully hides the items in her closet. Stakes are raised when Amelia becomes reckless. When she gets caught red-handed, she is forced to confront the hidden items in her closet and find true sense of empowerment. This story about confronting truths about yourself, empowerment, and perseverance.
