Story by Sumāh Ebelé
Devised by the ADP 2022 Company
Tomorrow is for new beginnings, but tonight might just be the biggest night of their lives…
Some will take a chance to say all the things they never said. And some will just walk away. But whatever happens, everyone is going to be there. One last time?
But when an unknown number, sends a shocking DM, everything changes.
A Direct Message explores the experiences of young people; their joy, their sadness, their loss, their triumph and everything in between.
