In Victorian-era England, highly precocious and imaginative eleven-year-old Georgiana Crimsworth is up late enjoying a good book. She suddenly experiences cramps and finds blood on her sheets. Not having received the talk yet, she doesn’t understand that this is her first period, and she thinks she’s dying. Her imagination runs amok as she searches for answers among sins and deadly disease, and fears the worst for what this means for herself and for her family.
Lauryn Anthony and Anushka Nair are student filmmakers who recently graduated from Ringling College of Art and Design. They have always had a deep love for period dramas, especially Pride and Prejudice, Downton Abbey, and Jane Eyre. This niche interest brought them together as friends in their freshman year of college, and then again as filmmakers in junior year to create a completely original film together.
