Six months on from the death of his mother, introverted Sam has retreated even more into his shell. He is depressed and achingly lonely, with only his psychiatrist for company. But that all changes when he meets Katy, a bright and bubbly girl who turns his bleak world upside down. Things begin to look up for him as Katy imbues his life with colour. It seems almost too good to be true. And it is. One fateful day, the illusion is shattered, and Sam has to learn that people can’t be so easily replaced, and the void so easily filled.
A student written film, Flowers for Katy, is an exploration of grief, loneliness and the male gaze.
