“Through Vincent’s storytelling, I was immediately pulled into our young Marc’s world. I could feel the desperation to escape his pain, even for a second, without considering the permanent consequences. A deeply moving debut for first-time filmmaker Vincent René-Lortie. The film really spoke to me as it touches on a subject matter that is very personal and affects millions of youths around the world. As an outspoken advocate for mental health awareness, it’s critical to put our attention towards media that shines a light on voices that need our support.”
