It’s the start of a new year at a small suburban high school. Abigail (Quinn Shephard) is an outcast who seeks solace in the worlds of the characters she reads about, much to the amusement of her manipulative classmate, Melissa (Nadia Alexander). When an intriguing new drama teacher (Chris Messina) casts Abigail over Melissa in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, Abigail’s confidence blooms, and soon her relationship with Jeremy begins to move beyond just fantasy. Melissa, fueled by vengeful jealousy, begins to spiral out of control and concocts a plot against Abigail. This triggers a chain of events that will come to affect everyone around them, as well as reveal some dark truths.

Quinn Shephard is a 22-year-old actress, writer, and director based out of NY. Her first feature-length screenplay, Blame, was selected as a finalist for the Sundance 2013 Screenwriters Lab, and Quinn directed the feature in July 2015.

Winner, Best Actress, for Nadia Alexander at the Tribeca Film Festival.
