(water rushing) (brooding music) (fighting) – Think I care about this dress? (muffled arguing) – [Voiceover] Sometimes
someone hurts you so bad – I don’t think you understand. – [Voiceover]] It
stops hurting at all. (brooding music) Until something
makes you feel again. And then it all comes back. Every word. Every hurt. Every moment. How could you ever
understand where I come from? Even if you ask,
even if you listen, you do not really
hear, or see, or feel. You don’t remember my story. You haven’t walked my path. You haven’t seen what I’ve seen. (ocean waves) (desolate music) My past defines me. This is who I am. I am unseen, unheard (camera flashing) unwanted. That is what I am. If even I am anything. (siren) (car door) (knocking) – [Cop] You’re under arrest. Police. Get on the floor. (desolate music) – [Voiceover] It seem
like the seemed like the same thing that held
me up forced me down. – No. – [Voiceover] In a world
turned upside down, and order disappeared. (baby crying) Nothing was how it
was suppose to be. And a heavy sadness
filled my soul. (desolate music) (crickets) (thunder) (desolate music) – [Voiceover] Deeper and
deeper I fell within myself. – [Blonde Woman] It’s
all fluffy and fuzzy. – [Voiceover] And nothing
could show me out. (baby crying) Trapped in the
misery of my life. Lost in the sorrow of my soul. Unable to see the light. Unable to see the dawn. To feel. To hope. – What are you doing
picking my fruit? – [Voiceover] To dream. (screaming) -[Voiceover] I found the darkest
days of my life kept coming. (screaming) The blackest nights for
my soul never stopped. – No, No. – Yes. (screaming) (water running) – [Voiceover] It seemed like it was always nighttime
and nightmares, and never morning. And maybe you wonder why, but mostly you try
not think about it, and try to get by, and try to survive. And all the other stuff
seems so much like nothing compared to just wanting the most important
things back again. Like wishing you could
see your mom smile again and hear her sing that one
favorite song that always calmed you down when
things were all messed up. Or if you couldn’t
have her back, at least get to take
care of your baby brother because you know he needs you, and he’s going to be
so scared all alone. And whose going to hold his hand and whisper it’s going
to be alright to him? (baby crying) And who will whisper it to me? – Hi ya, Zoe. It’s so good to have you here. Are you ready to move in? – [Voiceover] I know
I’m helpless, dependent, desperate, but what
happens when those you need the most threaten
your very existence? I’ve heard plenty of promises and they all sound the same. But push hard enough
and sooner or later they all prove to be empty. The sun comes up every morning, but do you know where? Each place it’s
somewhere different. It’s hard to find east when
you keep moving around, but at least it comes. It always comes. I’ve come to depend on that. And slowly, slowly
seasons changed around me, and it seemed this time
that maybe the world would not be pulled out
from under me again. Feet safe, roots
starting to grow. Little buds of hope for me. Slowly attempting to
trust this new life. – Hi, come over and let me show you what I got for you. I got you a gift. (far away arguing) – Do you think I care
about this dress? I don’t think you understand me. Do you? I don’t think you understand me. – [Voiceover] I wish
someone would tell me
(background arguing) it would be O.K. – I swear to God you touch me
again, – I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I will kill you. – Here let me help you. – [Zoe] No, don’t touch me. – [Voiceover] That
one day, maybe. – I hate you, I hate you. – [Voiceover] I’ll feel normal. – [Zoe] I hate you. – [Voiceover] That I
won’t always be alone. That I’ll have a
mommy who will hug me and be strong for me, because maybe I can’t
do it all by myself. (desolate music) – [Foster Mother] Hi, yes. I’m calling to (whispering). Thank you so much. Thanks. O.K. (whispering) (desolate music) (drawer slam) (drawer slam) (drawer slam) – [Voiceover] This my
past, my history, my story, is not my fault. It’s not because of me. And doesn’t have to be
what defines my future. (desolate music) I am lovable. I am worthy of care. And that glimmer of light,
it makes all the difference. The glimmers of light
give me hope that someday my summer will come. (desolate music)

About the author


  1. Как же мне жаль её 😔, я её очень хорошо понимаю 😩😔♥️

  2. “You don’t remember my story,
    You haven’t walked my path,
    You haven’t seen what I’ve seen.”.

  3. What's up with the lady screaming at the girl for eating her fruit? One tree provides so much. Also if possible foster/adopt siblings. This is the number one thing I want to do more than anything, to make sure at least one more family gets to stay together.

  4. I smiled at the end because now we know that she will have a glimmer of hope. With her brother and that black woman taking care of her. To have a loving family. And to be happy.

  5. The story she told left me with red teary eyes a runny nose and a smile☺️😢 (because she ended up with her brother)

  6. This is a brilliantly flawless film. I've worked in child-protection (I only lasted 6-months before being diagnosed with PTSD), what broke me was a system that in reality puts children way down the list of priorities – they come after Social Workers egos, the politics, policies and…

    This is such an accurate portrayal of abuse, and how children feel being placed in homes where the people who are supposed to look after, help heal, give comfort, stability and care/love don't. There are some 'unicorns' who are foster parents and I know one of them.

    Abby White was brilliant – she's a great actress and with so few scenes, Kyra Locke portrayed warmth, kindness, concern, and deep compassion. Please keep making movies like this, we need them. I posted it on my FB page.

    Thank all of you who were involved in making this film happen, or supported the people who created it. WELL DONE!!!

  7. I remember your story
    I walked your path
    I have seen what you have seen
    Even if its less… Abusive
    Everyone has been unseen and unwanted
    And even in some type of way abused
    And sometimes I think
    "Nobody knows me in the inside. Im not allowed to express my feeling. Nobody knows anything about me. Im happy on the outside, but sometimes sad in the inside"
    But other days, im really happy
    And you can be too

  8. I cried so hard..this movie just makes me feel so sorry for myself I feel like I'm trapped..its just, i don't know how to explain it..after I watched both parts I had a mental breakdown, punching the wall, it was about the usual, my life.

  9. this is where men fail to be men and become monsters and vessels of wrath fitted for destruction brute beasts who are to be taken and destroyed as is in romans 9:22 beasts who have no control over themselves fools and bastards!

  10. wow what got me was when you knew this new foster mother was going to be loving but she still tried to push her away because she can't trust .. I started crying when she was ripping the book her foster mom was trying to read to her.

  11. I.don't even feel 1% bad this small girl. She is so impolite. At least be polite. That is what you disserve. You don't deserve morning

  12. c'est ma réalité 😣😭😭 je déteste inchaelah khiiiir yaaaa rab
