A teenage girl whose body image is impacted by a prominent heart surgery scar reveals how subtle messages communicated to her, from a brief word by a family member or a serendipitous encounter with a stranger, have the potential to greatly influence her confidence and sense of self-worth.

Paul Mulgrew is an artist, filmmaker and designer who explores issues such as illness, disability, personal identity and the commodification of self. Paul’s work is often driven by a strong narrative thread and his first short film, Zipper, was selected to be screened at the 2020 Raindance Film Festival.
