A short film by Lillybeth Gonzalez
"The shortest distance between two people is a smile "- Anonymous
Upset after being bullied by a group of girls then seeing her ex-boyfriend hugging his new girlfriend on her way to the train to go home from HS, SOPHIA, slumps in her seat and is annoyed at everyone and everything so much that she doesn't even want to go home. So, when she notices a teenage boy around her age across the platform smile at her, she doesn't know what to do. Should she be rude and turn her head because he could be a creep, or, should she take a chance and just smile back? What started out as a gloomy afternoon for two teenagers , just might end up becoming an afternoon neither one will ever forget.
