"You're Nothing Without Me is a drama about a young violinist who has to go up against a powerful and prestigious conservatory when her well-respected teacher sexually assaults her after a concert. This story focuses on the abuse of power that has traditionally run rampant in the classical music world and draws from elements of classical music's #MeToo reckoning. This project is part of an overall body of work that examines the effect of dysfunctional families, both traditional and non-traditional, through the eyes of female protagonists." -- Abstract
