Connect To is a story about friendship and how two young women -- in the process of running away -- collide in the middle of the night. On a bus. Laurie needs sleep, while Whitney needs to finish singing all of the songs on her iPod. After a blow up at 3 am, will these two make it through the night?

Six wordless micro-shorts generated with physical movement about the moment of epiphany, from the perspective of six actresses. Awakening, empowerment, loss, family, wisdom and this mortal coil: the dream within the dream we live here on earth.

A desperate homeless couple breaks into an empty summer home. By playing house, they discover normalcy and hope. But when fantasy and reality collide, their dream becomes a matter of life and death.
"The Summer Home is a film about healing. As anyone who has gone through the tragedy of a miscarriage can attest to, the emotional wounds it can leave are not always the most overt, but they also don't just disappear. Kris and Lindy Boustedt's short film manages to respect the gravity of that trauma, while also allowing the audience a chance to relate and heal." Mark Bell, FilmThreat

A film about Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness... and the power to break free.
