The short film exploits the events of the Westgate attack and the effects it had on the victims. As the story unfolds on a letter, written by the victim about the damage it did to her, the trauma she holds in her, still evident in her voice and tears as she scribbles down the happenings of the day that left her inner core maimed at the very least price of a nation.

CHALLENGES: Shooting in the middle of the Campus Shopping Centre with all the distractions, the difficult task of controlling the masses. Editing and Sound were a major headache. The first sound cut was a major disaster and we had to redo it delaying us by two weeks and getting the recorder was a major hurdle.
