Stalled

 

The entire script of STALLED has been pieced together solely using real quotes found in women's washroom stalls across North America. What was shocking to discover was while there were several humorous quotations, there were countless pleas for help. The pleas are what make up this short film. Distinct characters were created out of the honesty of hundreds of people around the world. The story centers on THE JANITOR, a woman in her seventies. As she enters each stall, she becomes the woman who wrote the words on the walls. Each is dealing with a particular struggle and their honesty is heartbreaking. As she prepares to leave for the day, she realizes it may finally be her turn to speak.
