Adele is a young girl who struggles with confidence in her body. When she's challenged by a group of kids during an afternoon at the swimming pool, Adele is forced to confront her insecurities and decide whether she will fit in or not. The story explores themes of body image, self-esteem, and the pressures of social conformity. Will Adele be able to overcome her fears and embrace her true self, or will she succumb to the expectations of her peers?

Director Statement
DOG DAYS is a short story of female power and independence.
I’ve written it as a little poem to the confusion and allure of teenage summers. I would like to tell Adele that everything is fine, the dog days will pass and to hell with other people’s judgment.
