A Christian girl encounters the manifestation of her fears in a ragdoll, a terrifying entity she must confront to escape the true horrors in her life.

a live action queer horror short film


Allie, a devout Mormon, often stares at her reflection, imagining what she would look like if she were “different.” From the corner of her eye lurks a pioneer doll.

The doll seems to be watching her—in the mirror, or at her bedside, while she prays. Soon the ragdoll appears in her very reflection, terrifying Allie with its pale, faceless head. Allie can no longer bear to look at herself.

Haunted by the ever-present doll, Allie contemplates self-harm to cope with internal and external dread. When her mother discovers this she arranges a meeting with the bishop—yet even in the church, the ragdoll finds its way into her mind. Allie realizes she can never outrun her fear.

The only thing to be done: confront the ragdoll directly. But Allie discovers the ragdoll is no mere possessed toy. It is something far more familiar, something that has haunted her for years, and ultimately leaves Allie with a choice. It’s up to her to choose the light within… or the darkness waiting at the altar.

Tone & Style

Ragdoll will be imbued with bleak contrasting colors, placing Allie in a world that just doesn't sit quite right.

The production design will be subdued and dreary, clearly depicting a home where Allie is suffocating.

Allie delves deep into her pit of despair, where she feels entirely alone. Yet at that moment, she will finally feel like someone else sees her.
