Snap!- sometimes you have to go back so you can get out.  A true story of a young girl's experience of mental illness and her incredible journey back to sanity and freedom. A powerful and compassionate tale of darkness and redemption with exquisite music by cellist Elizabeth Simkin.

Absolutely beautiful, and truly unlike anything I've ever seen. It was dynamic and illustrative, and honest. Her ability to use humor was stunning. Incredible music! So beautifully performed.
