Port Hope


Port Hope is a poignant drama that delves deep into the often-misunderstood realm of mental health and suicide. Set against the cold, quiet backdrop of Port Hope, Ontario, in the dead of night during February 2024, this ten-minute short film tells the heart-wrenching story of Hope, a queer person, grappling with severe depression and suicidal thoughts. Despite their attempts to communicate the depth of their despair, they find themself tragically misunderstood by their closest ally.

Hope’s narrative unfolds through a series of unanswered voice messages and text conversations with their friend, who, despite her best intentions, fails to grasp the severity of Hope’s condition. As Hope’s pleas for understanding go disregarded, their sense of isolation intensifies, leading them to make an irreversible decision.
The film reaches its climax as her friend, almost too late, comes to the harrowing realization of Hope’s plight, underscoring a devastating truth about the consequences of neglecting the silent cries for help.
