When Sierra re-enters the world of the “mentally stable” and falls in love with her best friend, she thinks she's finally found acceptance for who she is. But when her family and teacher reject her, she discovers the cost of being herself versus being what others want her to be.
This is Emma Barrett’s directorial debut. Originally from Australia, Emma made her way to Los Angeles via Paris, France, where she was a dancer at the world-famous, Moulin Rouge. She then moved to New York City to study acting at David Mamet’s Atlantic Acting School. After completing her training, Emma moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting, and unexpectedly fell in love with the process of filmmaking. Realizing the liberation and empowerment of storytelling, she dove head first into a solo Kickstarter campaign, which she saw through to the end and is proud to present the result of this journey with her directorial debut, Take the Reins. Emma is currently working on two different feature film scripts which she looks forward to bringing to fruition in the near future.
