Lily must navigate love, self-discovery, and resilience to break free from emotional abuse.


After enduring emotional abuse in her relationship with fiancé Harry, Lily must find the courage to prioritise her own well-being, in this poignant exploration of love, self-discovery, and resilience.


Not all kinds of abuse are visible.

Lily, accustomed to Harry's controlling demeanor, rationalises his actions to preserve their relationship. However, as the night before their wedding approaches, Lily, who has never questioned Harry's decisions for her, makes a simple request – white lilies to honor her late mother during the wedding ceremony.

The illusion of a fairytale shatters as Lily walks down the aisle, only to discover the absence of the requested white lilies. A confrontation ensues at the altar, exposing the fault lines in their relationship. Faced with Harry's illogical justifications and habitual blame-shifting, Lily confronts the harsh reality of their dynamic. Standing at the altar, she is presented with a pivotal choice: continue overlooking the issue and marry the love of her life, or, for the first time, prioritise herself.
