Narrative Shorts Competition presented by IMDbPro
It’s the early 2000’s, and it’s been months since Meyi has seen her Father and Ezeresi has seen her husband. Meyi is a young Ugandan-American girl, who has yet to see the world beyond her Mother’s arms. An anxious middle child, Meyi often gets lost in the shuffle between first born son, Winston, and her younger sister, Baby Charlotte. But Ezeresi pays special attention to her eldest daughter, who only speaks in whispers. She has built a life for her three children, one where she is the all-knowing matriarch. This all changes when the family embarks on a bus ride from Albany, New York to Tulsa, Oklahoma to reunite with Christopher, the children’s estranged Father.
