Short Film Profile

Open Your Eyes

Life threw Julia a curve ball she never expected. Julia struggles to come to terms with her life and marriage after being diagnosed with breast cancer. It all comes to a head when she attends a friend's bridal shower – wanting desperately to escape from the clamor of the other women, Julia hides out in the bathroom – only to be intruded upon by a stranger. The stranger turns out to be Kat, the frank-talking, pot-smoking sister of the bride-to-be, who, like Julia, would rather be in the bathroom than out with the other women. Julia is taken by surprise when Kat locks the door and lights up. In this unlikely hiding place, Julia finds herself in a very frank and funny conversation. As she opens up to Kat, Julia realizes that she can't hide forever.
