Juliet Capulet is forced to live for eternity knowing that her true love died in her arms. Broken and numb, she meets a young woman who captures her heart again and teaches her that love and loss are all a part of life.

Ella also starred in ‘Ismael‘ and ‘No Snakes in Garden‘ in 2013 and 2014 respectively.

Wait, Juliet killed herself, right?

Yeah, that part is true or at least she tried😉. Let me fill you in on some spoilers, she was turned by a vampire.

Hey Ella, we’re hoping for a homecoming one day. You’re always welcome, see you soon.
