Celeste - Complete Short Film

Blending fiction and tragic history “Celeste” is a story of a young woman’s journey for truth and self-discovery in the face of lies, political conspiracy and cultural genocide.

As her mother lies on her deathbed, Shannon Thompson’s life is hurled into disarray when it’s revealed that she is adopted.  As Shannon seeks out the truth behind her adoption, she unravels a very disturbing truth.
