PURGATRORY HOUSE chronicles the after-life journey of a lonely teen who abandoned her life of peer pressure only to find herself caught between Heaven and Hell. Here she will remain 14-years-old forever unless she can find within herself the courage to change. Filmed in 2001 with miniDV cameras and edited on early home-based computers, "Purgatory House" marked the beginning of the democratization of film. Written by and starring a 14-year-old at-risk high school student, Celeste Davis was the [then] first youngest sole-credited feature screenwriter to have a feature distributed.

Hey! None of that!
No, it's okay. I want them to be honest about what they're feeling. A lot of teen suicides have to do with kids bottling up their emotions and having nobody to talk to.
