Jury comments: "Elephant Garden captured the "inner-life" of a beautiful young girl; her confusion as she becomes a young adult. Wonderful visual story telling and the performance of Kelley Mack is stellar."

 
When 11-year-old Chloe's world is turned upside down after meeting her older sister's new boyfriend, her notion of sisterly bonds is sent spinning into oblivion as she discovers the thin line between the truth and a lie.
