A House of Tales & Out of the Ark film
A film about PTSD and not knowing what people are going through on a daily basis.
Set in an office with an important presentation looming, a manager she doesn't get along with and a flirtatious male colleague who doesn't realise the effects of his actions, Ellie has to hide her exhaustion and anxiety from the trauma she relives when she closes her eyes to sleep.
Called Prefer To Sip Tea because it's a way to ground yourself during a PTSD attack. Always have a drink with you; if you can feel the liquid going down your throat you're awake, the rest are nightmares. And tea is such a homely drink I'd Prefer To Sip Tea than have a PTSD attack.
