Based on a true story, SCAR follows Noah, a stubborn young man, who is assaulted on his way home after a life-changing first date. The attack impacts his mental health and those closest to him. In denial of his condition but incited to seek help, he must learn to be vulnerable in order to find strength.

The narrative unfolds in three intertwined timelines and delves into themes of love, adversity, trauma and healing. One thread tells the beautiful first date Noah goes on with Ellie, followed by the relationship they share as she guides and inspires him beyond his trauma. The second thread deals with the traumatic assault in real-time as Noah faces a life-or-death choice. Then last but not least, the third thread takes places in a talking therapy room where Noah meets our unconventional and invigorating therapist, Christine.
The three distinct threads entwine in a moving and powerful climax, with subtle humour and genuine moments of happiness throughout.

"I am thrilled to share this story and translate it into a compelling narrative presenting a truthful and unique take on one's willingness to change and seek help. Knife crime has such a detrimental impact to anyone affected by it, and I believe it is most important to raise awareness on how such an incident can suddenly change one's life and impact his mental health." Nico Bourgeais
"I am deeply humbled by Nico's courage in sharing his story and his choice to create something positive by doing so. I am thrilled to be directing this compelling and impactful short in my debut as a narrative film director." Gethin Anthony

WHY WE ARE FUNDRAISING
We'd be so grateful for your support which will enable us to enter post-production and complete the film to the highest level possible. We raised the 8,000£ budget, for pre-production and principal photography and shot the film collaborating with an amazingly talented crew led by Israr Azam as our cinematographer, whose vision elevated the film beyond our imaginations. We are now aiming to crowdfund a further 4,000£, which will finance the editing, colour grade, sound design, sound mix and composition of the score.
We passionately believe in this project and once finished we aim to submit the short to established and renowned film festivals across the UK, Europe and the rest of the world in order to bring this story of hope to as wide an audience as possible.
