Overview

THE TRUE GIFT –(EMPATHY)

Students are gearing up for the annual Secret Buddy Week at Zoe’s high school. It is supposed to be a time for giving encouragement and praise but quickly it becomes all about who got what and how much did it cost. Zoe’s Secret Buddy gives her friendly cards but nothing compared to anyone else. When the tension finally reaches the boiling point, Zoe discovers a part of herself that she is not proud of. The True Gift is about discovering what really matters and being sensitive to people no matter who they are.
