"Why women tolerate mediocre and decide it's good enough, I'll never understand."
Written by Alexandra Blatt, Pocket Girl tells the story of a woman struggling to stand up for herself—accepting far less than she deserves. Through the film, she makes choices which ultimately show her how to inspire respect from others, and more importantly, herself. It's about personal relationships, the injurious competition between women, and how one can move through trauma and learn to give and receive support.
It also highlights social and cultural norms and attitudes that are damaging to women, affecting the way we view ourselves and each other.
