Martha, haunted by memories of her mother and a broken friendship, uses photography and a chiffon ballgown to try to make sense of it all.
Martha’s separated from everything and everyone. It’s only when she’s challenged by her art teacher to attempt a final photography assignment before college finishes, that she’s forced to consider her way back to life.
Set in East London against the backdrop of the last days of college and prom, THE DRESS is a coming of age drama about loss, love, memories and hope.
With nothing to lose, Michelle (16) a tough young rebel forms an unlikely alliance with Gabrielle (21) a young Cree (indigenous) woman and Kofi (22) a Ghanaian refugee - with strange powers he can’t control - to find her mother’s final resting place. A coming of age supernatural drama set in Canada’s prairies.
