Sad Girls is a well-constructed coming-of-age story about a young woman who told a lie with serious consequences. Approaching her final exams in her senior year of high school, Audrey tells a lie that seemingly causes a peer to take her own life. Racked with guilt, panic attacks and finding that she fancies her deceased peer's boyfriend, Audrey seeks to re-define herself in the aftermath of despair and trauma. Sad Girls is a story of love, forgiveness and finding oneself.
