Play Me, I'm Yours

2018, 20 minutes

Layla typically plays a public piano at the local train station for money, but now, she has an audition for a prestigious orchestra in hopes to turn her poverty-stricken life around.

The story follows Layla, a teenager on the outskirts of society living in a tent and barely getting by. Layla earns money by playing the public piano in the city train station, her only solace between trying to survive a life of poverty and trying to control the epilepsy that affects her life daily. Layla's past is a mystery, but she holds hope in her ability to play and manages to get an audition for a prestigious orchestra. She is placed against several other musicians who fit the mold, but her heavily tattooed skin and shabby appearance contradicts the world she is trying to be a part of. The story sees Layla on her audition day trying to battle prejudice and the effects of epilepsy while standing out in the only way that matters- her ability as a classical pianist.
