When a bullied Indian teen forges her mother’s signature to test out of school, she discovers she must pay a test fee by 7th period, leaving her no choice but to turn to the students she desperately wants to leave.


Born and raised in Chennai, Mohan completed her MFA in film production with an emphasis in directing at Chapman University in California. She was the recipient of the Leo Freedman Award for excellence in visual storytelling. Her thesis film, “Turn Around,” was showcased in the Cannes Short Film Corner and screened at multiple film festivals.

With a flair for writing “strong and compelling” female characters, in the film, Mohan has baked in her own experiences of being a young girl growing up in a conservative family from India.
