"MOTEL" is a gut-punch psychological thriller that explores the machinations of a woman's broken and bruised mind as she attempts to leave her troubled past behind. The story opens with Charlie, a young girl, witnessing trauma within her family, a scene that introducing young Charlie in the dark familial prison that forces her to protect herself anyway possible.
