Una aprendiz invisible

An Invisible Apprentice | Seht ihr mich?
No matter how warm the colours or how loud the music, worry always clouds Inés’ eyes. However, whenever she is asked what’s going on, she has no words. The neon lights and the beeping of the EKG in her sister's room are like a glaring filter over the film image bathed in soft light. The rehearsals for the big performance of her roller skating group are supposed to bring distraction. Tummy ache and glitter are as close together as sadness and happiness.
