Anagha Narayan is your average eighth grader. She's a people pleaser, she's insecure, and she wants nothing more than to have clear skin. Her life changes drastically when she wishes on a fallen eyelash and her wish is granted: she has the clearest skin she's ever had.

When word gets out that Anagha has magic eyelashes, the people in her life guilt trip her into giving them up. More and more people wish for superficial and terrible things, and Anagha is unaware of the effects this has on herself and the world. That's when the aliens arrive. 

This film plays with SHORTS PROGRAM 1, in theaters and with the BEYOND THE END OF THE WORLD program online. 

NOTE: This film is coming to theaters and our virtual cinema.
