Directed by Roberto Carmona (USA/2019/82mins)

Key Cast: Phoebe Ryan, Jake Etheridge, Holly Twyford

A week in the life of a talented but aimless singer, besieged by a failed relationship and struggling to make peace with her past. Desperate to prove that she isnt a failure, she revisits her musical ambitions and embarks on a new path -- albeit, not a straight one.

Director's Statement: As a filmmaker in a major city thats primary identity and commerce is not centered in the arts, I know first- hand how easy it is to overlook the incredibly talented artists that inhabit a place like Washington, DC. I wanted to make a film that wasnt on the nose about DCs under-appreciated arts culture, but one that gives a voice to young artists that feel stuck in a place that isnt ostensibly positioned to supporting their art-form; the directionless singer that doesnt know where or how to begin.

Introducing Phoebe Ryan in her breakout role as Dakota. Phoebe is an American actress, singer, and songwriter. As a musical artist, Phoebe has released multiple EPs that have received critical acclaim as well as toured the world with her musical act.
