Project Description A 15-minute Yale College thesis film to be shot in 4K by an award-winning writer/director, an award-winning cinematographer, and a crew of ten: What does it take to give up on your brother? When Em’s older brother Bobby leaves rehab and asks to come home on their mother’s birthday to apologize for past wrongs, their parents refuse to see him. Em sneaks out of the house to find Bobby and hear him plead his case; convinced that he’s changed, she agrees to help him, hoping in vain to heal her broken family. A story about siblinghood, forgiveness, and addiction’s effect on families that combines naturalistic conflict with humor and suspense.
