    Everything Happens for a Reason

    The Five Cent Curve
    USA
    When life comes crashing down around you, will you be strong enough to pick up the pieces? Three different perspectives: those of a suicidal mother, a young deaf boy and a pregnant teenager. All three are riddled with guilt and are unable to clear their consciences. Their lives simultaneous unfold and overlap and result in a most surprising outcome. Coincidence? You be the judge. Director Brendan Hayward attended film school at USC. Principle cast: Deidre West, Jeffrey Lorenzo, Jacquie Willey, Stewart Skelton and Zoe Yeoman.
