What Did I Miss?

OVERVIEW

    Commissioned by The Ark.

  • Synopsis

    Kyla is throwing a party on her street. Not just any party. It’s a graduation ceremony. It’ll be mad to see the kids from her old class again after so long. Summer 2020 was literally endless. Now that they’re all in first year, Kyla wants to get the old gang back together. She’s made caps, she has gowns, and she’s even prepared a speech. But there’s one visitor she’s not expecting. A celebration of rites of passage, exploring how we reconnect as we adapt to a new way of life in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
