Set over a 24-hour period, in our modern and vast interconnected social media world, Kaleidoscope follows a young teenage girl called Molly who is hearing impaired and struggles to socialize because of her condition. She’s recently turned 18 and has been invited to a girl’s night out in a nearby house party, but her parents aren’t so encouraging of such activities. She wants to experience a ‘normal life’ and not let her condition or parents continue to control her, so she lies to her parents and sneaks out to go the party. When she reaches the party, it’s not the glorious and fun filled event that it’s made out to be on social media, it is instead a drug and alcohol fueled event that takes a turn for the worst. The decisions that follow, throughout the rest of the night, will mean life or death for Molly.
