Are You Okay?

Are Υou Οkay?

63rd TIFF: International Premiere

This bystander story is told through the perspective of a 15-year-old girl, Raquelle, who witnesses her classmate Noah being bullied. When doing the right thing transforms Raquelle from bystander to victim, she finds herself trapped in the same emotional quicksand as her peers. At an age when social acceptance weighs heavy and the stress of social media follows you home, Raquelle and Noah learn that no one can make it through alone. Are You Okay? explores the impact that reaching out can have on someone in crisis.
