Eighth Grade

Kayla Day always has her phone in hand, hoping to find online virtual connections that can compensate for what she is not able to achieve in everyday life. She is a teenager and creates videos on YouTube addressed to other teenagers who face similar problems – isolation, anxiety and loneliness – but if she can gain confidence when addressing her audience (made up of few users), Kayla can not do the same in real situations. In the last week of a fairly disastrous school year, and with high school on the horizon, Kayla struggles to bridge the gap between the way she perceives herself and what she believes should be.
