At a family reunion, a reserved 12-year-old girl struggles to find a sense of belonging after being forced into meeting her half-sister for the first time.

Director’s Vision for ‘Half’

During both of our childhoods, we lost connection with one side of our families completely after just one reunion dinner that went terribly wrong, and that experience was what inspired the story of “Half.” Through telling this story from a child’s perspective, we hope to show the psychological impact of family dysfunctionality on a young child, as well as bring awareness to children’s mental health.
