My Turtle’s Name is Dudley is a short drama about a family whose secrets and shortcomings leave a young girl in the dark and alone.
A young woman enjoys shopping with her mother and an image, across the street, suddenly transports her back to her childhood where she relives a memory that has been hidden deep inside her – being molested by her father.
She, along with her best friend Dudley, watches her father manipulate her and her mother to obtain what he desires most.
And as quickly as it began, Jade is back shopping with her mother, sun shinning, and memory over.
