Trigger Warning

This film discusses mental health and suicide

Lara Shea
LANGUAGE(S): English


A star in the sky, shared as a metaphor for children who have undergone great adversity, is both moving and profound. A mother’s strength; a child’s resilience; the support of a community; the tragedy of mental illness and loss: these are the themes that are ingrained in this film – and their story.
