Emo (the musical)

When Ethan, an Emo kid who hates almost everything, falls in love with Trinity, a good Christian girl with a passion for life and her Lord Jesus Christ, they dare not let their friends find out because she belongs to a group of Christian musicians and Ethan belongs to a group of Emos, and both groups are battling for the music room. As the turf war escalates, the star-crossed lovers are forced to make decisions that might cost them their friends, their place in school, and each other. Won Special Mention for the Crystal Bear Award for Best Short Film at the 2014 Berlin Film Festival.
