Detailed Synopsis: Set in February of 1960, 'Horizon' is a film dealing with the struggle of losing a loved one. Charlotte, a widowed woman, raises her two children while being haunted by her past.

The concept of this film was inspired by my Nana, my Mother’s Mother, who in 1960 tragically lost her husband. My Nana’s strength as a woman and mother who raised a wonderful family with such struggles has always inspired me. I wanted to take the image of my Nana and create a film from my eyes and
perception of the story I have been told all of my life that honored both my Nana and my Grandfather, whom I have never met. My passion is film; having the ability to create images and actions reflecting on what I see and feel. I’m spirited in expressing my message through films in ways that people can relate to, think about for days, weeks later. When a film is capable of shaping one’s life after a visual and emotional experience,
that’s why I thrive to inspire, for I am each and everyday by the world that surrounds me.
