synopsis
Would you have the courage to ask the tough question? With her boyfriend deployed to Afghanistan in the U.S. Air National Guard, young Ashley finds it unbearable. Jane, her best friend, has to summon the strength to confront her before Ashley reaches beyond the breaking point and does the most desperate thing imaginable.

director
MaryLee Herrmann takes a daring approach to filmmaking, creating strong stories with characters that are emotionally complex, at times contradictory, certainly not one-dimensional. MaryLee has worked on both sides of the camera, as an actor in films and commercials, and as a producer on independent short films and features. Using that experience, she is proud to have brought together an exceptional cast and crew for her directorial debut, The Necklace. Currently developing a feature film, MaryLee's take on captivating storytelling is simple: Draw them in, let them feel, then let them go. Inspired.
