When Sofia gets her first period, her brother Lucas sets out to secure the feminine products she needs, confronting many harsh realities along the way. 'On the Clock' is a kinetic and intimate portrayal of two siblings coming of age in East LA.

This short film was made through USC's prestigious 546 thesis class. Other notable alumni of this class include Ryan Coogler (Black Panther, Creed) and Steven Caple Jr (Creed II, The Land). The crew's department heads all comprise of current USC Cinematic Arts students.

This short film examines how the cost of menstrual products affects low-income girls and women otherwise known as period poverty. Girls all over the world can't reach their full potential - they skip school, use their own makeshift products - because they can't afford the products they need for their cycle. 

We are looking to partner with non-profit organizations and individuals who are looking to spread the word about this very important topic that affects young girls globally.
