Notes

A young, colourful, highly intelligent girl with an archaic mind has been raised by overzealous helicopter parents who do everything in their power to keep her busy, hidden away, and safe. She wants her freedom, but she is systematically ingrained by the rules they have created. She can only find ways to combat her repressive parents through her own rebellious thoughts.

Upon witnessing something sinister, a dark reality comes crashing through the protective layers her family has devised for her. She is challenged to fend for herself. The tightly wound rules must be challenged and the conventions by which she abides are shaken once and for all. A new echelon of liberty is uncovered.
