Inward delves into the lives of a large and disconnected family as they navigate their way through the aftermath of a pandemic. Inward, explores themes of suicidal ideation, body dysmorphia, bullying, parental expectations, and the importance of families looking inward for support.

Inward follows the sudden loss of affluent lifestyle, forcing the family to turn inward and face their personal struggles. “With Inward, our goal was to create a film that would resonate with audiences of all ages and backgrounds, by exploring themes that are relatable to many families. I’m excited for the world to see this film and hope it will inspire people to be there for one another, especially during difficult times” said Lepeka Lynn, writer/producer of the film.
