View When Grey Is A Colour during the First Step Forward (Public 1) event.

Despite Cato’s efforts to reconnect with her brother following his suicide attempt, he remains withdrawn. By chance, Cato meets an unexpected stranger who provides an escape from the tense emotions filling her house. Exploring this challenging subject from a young girl’s perspective, this beautifully constructed short film uses a muted colour palette to convey the emotion of Cato’s family.
