Strawberry Starburst

A heartfelt and poignant drama about one girl’s battle with her demons.

Shez is passionate about Strawberry Starburst, her mum’s cooking and her boyfriend’s prickly face.

But when her life takes a sudden turn, she’s forced to decide between the food she loves and the people she cares about. Unknown to her, this decision will lead to a choice between life and death.

Strawberry Starburst is a heartfelt and poignant drama about one girl’s battle with her demons…and the lengths she’ll go to fight them.

‘I close my eyes and think back to the days when I used to stuff my face with mum’s spaghetti bolognese and I loved it, tomato juice dripping all down my chin. OK. Challenge accepted.’
