SHORT FILM | 15 MIN | COMEDY, DRAMA
Filled with heart, humor, and a handful of expletives, “Trying” follows Meg, a millennial painter with ADHD, as she navigates her life on the way to an important job interview.
What starts as a simple task turns into a race against the clock as she encounters society’s stigmas, unlikely allies, and challenges from her past.
Created by ADHD actor/writer Samantha Labrecque, "Trying" was shot by an all-woman crew to destigmatize ADHD in media and raise awareness around neurodivergence in girls and women. She is currently working to expand the story into a TV series.
