About the Film
The summer before her freshman year of college, a successful pageant queen is diagnosed with a rare skin disease that makes all of her hair fall out. A month away from the biggest pageant of her life, she must learn (with help from an unlikely friend) to deal with her disease in order to win the pageant and the scholarship that will pay her college tuition.
About the Alliance
The Michigan Creative Film Alliance is an exciting, joint venture between three top research universities: Michigan State University, University of Michigan, and Wayne State University. The universities proposed a historic, innovative, collaborative alliance to drive talent and resources toward the creation and sustainment of an indigenous film community across the state. This collaboration begins with a one-semester class for select students of the three universities. These students have the opportunity to create a short film, utilizing their own talents and skills while being mentored by top instructors in the field.
