“It’s What She Would Have Wanted”, a short film directed by Nate Trinrud, has joined the select group of films competing at the 17th Annual HollyShorts Film Festival Sep. 23-Oct. 1 at Hollywood’s Famed TCL Chinese Theatres.

The contemporary dramedy centers around Maggie (Marie Selma), who welcomes four of her oldest friends back home after the unexpected death of one of their circle. She convinces them to fulfill a childhood pact to destroy all evidence of their friend’s most embarrassing secrets. Their plan proves less than foolproof when long-buried resentments begin to rise, and the group realizes Maggie is dealing with more than the loss of a friend.
