Synopsis: Determined to reclaim her life after a near death experience resulting from her alcohol abuse, 27-year-old- newly-sober KI ROYCE, must now make her way through a thicket of challenges including online dating, unpredictable young men, baffling job requirements and a host of other modern challenges as she discovers what life’s like without dependencies.

KI is six months off booze and life ain’t stopping for no one. She’s desperate to rebuild herself, her relationships and her dating and professional life. There’s a lot to do and she’s almost 30! Her childhood bestie GINA (32) is always up for a supportive chat to help put KI’s life in perspective to help guide her along, with a special insight into the dating game. As KI starts her new day job, she’s determined to follow her secret passion to be an actress often ducking out of the office for a sneaky lunchtime audition. When KI starts to use dating and sex as her replacement vices, she realizes that her old habits no longer serve her and perhaps it’s time to face who she really is.

Director's Statement

ALCOHOL DEPENDENCE for women of all ages and socioeconomic status is the elephant in the room in Australia right now and the
issue needs to be addressed with honesty and with hope. My objective is to counter the media saturation of glorifying drinking, that alcohol equates to good times for young women by creating a dynamic and engaging series, HELP, about a young woman reclaiming her life after a decade of struggling with addiction. HELP aims to be educational as well as entertaining, intending to “help” other women to take control over alcohol, to make the choice to be alive and be the best versions of themselves.

Director's Bio

I’m a producer of social media and marketing content, music videos, web series, branded entertainment, events, short and long form narrative content. I also create, write and produce original work such as award winning Web Series ‘No Pink Cowboys’ & ‘Help’.

I’ve been fortunate to work with dynamic production companies across Melbourne including Jump, December Films, Guilty, Ruby Entertainment, Visible Studios, Positive Ape and many more.

My passion and interest is primarily focused on producing television and online content expressly directed towards raising awareness of the mental health issues facing young people. Those issues, especially associated with various addictions fuel my ambition to work with public and private sector organisations determined to diminish the impact of these issues in modern society.
