About the film

Hope has a life changing piano audition coming up, nerve wracking at the best of times. Unfortunately, as a sufferer of social anxiety, it’s going to take extraordinary courage to seek the help needed to pursue her dream. This story is fiction, but the “Banana Walk” is a genuine treatment. Filmed on location in Eastbourne, UK.
