Teenaged Charlee is set to celebrate a milestone like none other. It’s been a year since she had her abortion. Those plans are quickly halted however, when she discovers a secret that threatens to tear her family apart. Writer/Director Alicia Bunyan-Sampson was introduced to storytelling as a means for escape, but in her debut film she challenges viewers to do anything but that. Happy 1 Year is an honest and intergenerational look at how women silently carry trauma with them and the struggle to find a voice.
