"Flee" is a collection of film stills reflecting the emotions of wanting to flee, run away, or escape from one's home. These images are left open for individuals to interpret in a diversity of ways, whether it be household neglect or abuse, or simply the need for a breath of fresh air. In this story, a young woman is filled with the urge to leave her hometown. She feels stagnant and uncomfortable where she lives and leaves, whether physically or mentally, forever. By the end, she is out of breath and left with a sense of confusion. However, she learns to move forward with no regrets, illustrating the bewildering exhilaration of desiring to leave one's home; this is a feeling many youth may experience. It's time to flee.
