The Girl with One Eyelash
A father faces his biggest fear - of losing a child - when his daughter is diagnosed with a deadly illness that will impact her for the rest of her life. The documentary follows Hayley’s journey, a young girl diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma - a soft tissue tumour - and her relationship with her father, Andrew. “The Girl with the One Eyelash” explores the challenges Hayley has been forced to overcome and is yet to face, for the rest of her life.
The short film is now on it's festival tour, but you can watch the trailer above.
We edited a version of the documentary for Cancer Council Victoria to be used in their fundraising campaign in 2018.
