The description of "Shattered" from the Eclipse Film Festival site reads:

A cinematic poem about a young woman imprisoned by inhibitions. A pane of glass separates her from the inner-peace she seeks. Surrounded in a collage of pictures from her past she begins to piece together who she is and where she came from. After her struggling search she awakens to a realization of her unnecessary self-inflicted bondage. She breaks free from her glass prison. Now reconciled, she can finally look herself in the eye.

"Shattered" can currently be viewed online in QuickTime format.
