This dance video follows a young girl and her need for mental health support.

She is aware she needs this support, but society so often doesn’t see the youngest generation’s cry for help so she is unsure of where to turn.

In a rundown space we watch her struggle to phone for help, overwhelmed by the idea of picking up the receiver.

When she finally makes the call it is too late and the line is dead. The aim of the video is to raise awareness of mental health issues within younger people in today’s society, using dance and music as story-telling methods to show this problem in a new light.
