The disappearance of a young girl in rural Illinois forces a group of teenagers and their parents to confront their fears and failures.


Jennifer Reeder constructs personal fiction films about relationships, trauma, and coping. Her award-winning narratives borrow from a range of forms including after-school specials, amateur music videos, and magical realism. These films have shown around the world, including the Sundance, Berlinale, SXSW, and The Whitney Biennial.
