Short Film

A missed call from an unknown number spirals Sara into distress. She knows what the call is but can’t bring herself to return it. For a reason, her greatest fear would be confirmed as true if she did. She’s stuck in an airport due to her flight being delayed multiple times. Her inner world is crumbling. A projected unyielding panic overwhelms her as she tries to find a solution to get home. Can’t anybody help her? A small gesture from a woman who works for the airline takes Sara to a lounge where an unlikely stranger becomes the confessional she didn’t know she needed. SARA is an intimate short film about a woman who finds the strength to confront a cancer diagnosis by relying on the comfort of strangers.

Writer/Director Jessica Hinkson receives the Women In Film Screenplay Award from the Oscar Qualifying HollyShorts Film Festival '21 with SARA.
