Written by and starring a 14-year-old girl, this film is a living, breathing snapshot of how it feels to be a teen in today's disconnected world. Purgatory House begins where most stories end, as it chronicles the after-life journey of a lonely teen who abandons her life of turmoil and drug addiction, only to find herself caught somewhere between heaven and hell. There, she must choose whether she will accept her drab existence or finally discover within herself the power to change. Told in non-linear form, this quirky coming-of-age film stars teen writer Celeste Davis, Johnny Pacar ("Make it or Break it", "Flight 29 Down") Jim Hanks (Baby Geniuses), and Devin Witt, and features music by Natalie Merchant, Blue Oyster Cult, Violent Femmes, Grammy-nominated Eric Bazilian, and other top recording artists. Winner of 10 Film Festival Awards and 2-time PRISM Award™ Nominee, this powerful debut from director Cindy Baer has been hailed by Film Threat as "a charming, touching, clever and all-around brilliantly crafted film."
