Written & Directed by Tiffany Ann Laufer, tiffanylaufer.com

Kinshasa dreamed of simple things...a Mom and Dad, food on the table...but when her dreams fade she finds a reality not her own. Alone in a world that forgot about children and their dreams, she has to find the courage to discover her own destiny.

The Acorn Penny is a short film of hope. An artistic work that shines a light on a forgotten part of the world. A call to aid for the living and a remembrance of the 5.4 million people who have died in the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s Mineral Wars since 1998.

The Acorn Penny premiered on ShortsHD September 21, 2011 for World Peace Day.
