Broken

It will all go wrong dad, everything goes wrong.

    Broken Synopsis

    Skunk is 11, diabetic and pretty cool.

    Rick is her sweet neighbour. Bob is her mean neighbour. Skunk’s world is about to change…

    Shortly after witnessing a brutal beating, Skunk’s home, neighbourhood and school all become treacherous environments, where the happy certainties of childhood give way to injustice and danger; her innocence is rapidly worn away and a harsh world fills her future. When Skunk finally seeks solace in an unspoken friendship with sweet, damaged Rick, she’s left with a choice- to stay in a life she was not promised, or to leave this broken place behind…
