Short Film: Façade

Facade is the story of sixteen-year-old Avery who in order to escape a dreary life with her abusive mother, runs to a travelling circus as it leaves town. Narrated to us by an unknown man, we follow her time with the carnival folk, working as cleaner, assistant and general helping hand. After running away from home, she learns that life in the circus is not as magical as she thought it would be.
