Bitter Sky

Shortfilm, 16 Minutes, UK (2019)

Bitter Sky follows the story of a troubled, tough but incredibly bright 15 year old girl called Nia, who’s living estranged from her mother with her adopted father Roy in the barren and wild landscape of Mid Wales. On this coming-of-age journey, she befriends local boy Aron as they fix up a broken down car that Nia has found in the woods. She must build unlikely friendships and face her demons in order to break away from the coercive control of her guardian.
