A BEAUTIFULLY TRAGIC STORY ABOUT GROWING UP IN THE SHADOW OF A MENTAL ILLNESS

The man from the house next door is dan­ge­rous. He throws stones, sneaks around the house at night and clim­bs onto his neigh­bors’ roof. These claims made by Dawn howe­ver are fic­ti­tious. When Melanie rea­li­ses that her mother Dawn is incre­a­singly suf­fe­ring from para­no­id delu­si­ons, her world comes cra­shing down. She wan­ted to move out and live her dream of going to col­le­ge. But how can the 17-year-old help her mother without giving up on all her dreams? PAPER SPIDERS shi­nes with out­stan­ding actres­ses who embo­dy Melanie’s fears for the future and Dawn’s men­tal ill­ness in a tou­ch­ing way.
