Holden On is the true story of a teen from the small town of LaGrange, Georgia, struggling with mental illness and addiction in the mid '90s. Holden Layfield was cheerful, popular, a star athlete, kind, and compassionate . . . and he had a dark secret: he suffered from schizophrenia. As his condition deteriorated and his attempt to self-medicate turned into addiction, he disconnected from family and friends. On November 16, 1995. 19-year-old Holden committed suicide with a shotgun.

Tamlin Hall was one of Holden's schoolmates and in his phenomenal first film he shows that Holden's life matters by exposing the stigma surrounding mental illness and encouraging those who are suffering to talk about it and seek help. His cinema verite style, iconic 90's soundtrack, finely chosen cast, and obvious respect and empathy for his subject create a passionate testimonial to someone whose life was shattered before it even started. — Ben F. Fischer
