When Heaven Doesn't Want You And Hell Is All You Know.
Written by and starring 14-year-old Celeste Davis, this groundbreaking feature offers an inside glimpse of how it truly feels to be a teen in today's world. Purgatory House begins where most stories end, as it chronicles the after-life journey of Silver Strand: a lonely teen who abandons her life of turmoil and drug addiction, only to find herself caught somewhere between heaven and hell. There, she must choose whether she will accept her drab existence or finally discover within herself the power to change. Told darkly with fantastical elements, Purgatory House also stars Jim Hanks (Baby Geniuses), and Johnny Pacar (Now You See It, TV's Flight 29 Down) and includes music by some of the recording industry's top artists. Winner of 7 film festival awards and 2-time PRISM Award Nominee, this powerful debut from director Cindy Baer was hailed by Film Threat as "a charming, touching, clever and all-around brilliantly crafted film."
