THIS IS HOW WE WALK THE MOON
This Is How We Walk The Moon is about a young Deaf girl, who is sent away at a young age by her mother to a School for the Deaf, as she feels she cannot care for her anymore. The film begins as she returns back home to news of her dying mother and struggles as she tries to integrate into a new school.
WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT
The funds we raise on IndieGoGo are vital to helping us finish our film! Due to unforseen circumstances, we have been forced to add on extra shoot days and we would hate to see this project fall by the wayside. We have already put in a lot of time, money and effort into this project and now we need your help to finish it!
