Jeremy Silva, writer/dir.
Casting "Embrace," a short film. Producer states: "'Embrace' is a courageous illumination on the harsh reality of teen bullying and suicide. In a conceivable near future, a program known as 'Embrace' allows the soul to be separated from the physical body by the cutting of a 'silver cord.' acting as a 'humane' way to pass over to what's 'next.' Though the program is primarily introduced to the terminally ill, it reaches the ears of troubled youths. As Peter 'Sk' Bonham faces the brutality and bigotry of the world around him, he comes home not to find solace but torment. Sky wages war within himself, struggling with his family, sexuality, and self-worth. As the obstacles begin to pile around him, he considers entering the Embrace Program."
