NUNE (pronounced "Noon-nay" is a coming-of-age short film about two dreamers: an American beauty who aims for the stars and a teen outcast who buries her head in the stars. They are two total opposites with one common desire.
A 15-year-old Nune creates a fantasy world to escape from the pain of social rejection and bullying. But her archenemy’s girlfriend—a model cheerleader with a bleeding heart—keeps luring her near.
Dressed in mismatched hand-me-downs and armed with a glove to mask her scars, Nune Lusparian is doomed and troubled.
Hunched over and often in tears, Nune drifts through Paradise High School struggling for invisibility. Her dark shadowy figure grabs the attention of a star athlete, Briana Enright. Briana’s clique wonders why a girl who has it all, would jeopardize her rank by sympathizing with the high school’s ugly duckling. Then start the rumors that Briana might be gay.
Pained by an irrevocable yearning, Briana must brave going out on a limb to follow her heart. But will Nune rise up to catch her falling star?
