Somewhere In Between Kate Yeager and Amelia French
About This Show
This is a story of convergence. This is what happens when the mundane, the unimaginable, and the horrors of reality meet. We are living in a time in which society has encountered immense stress, destruction, failure, and hate. But we continue living. We continue to go about our everyday lives. We all have a story to tell within this overarching global narrative. These are the lives of five people facing the world, telling us their stories, trying to stay afloat amongst the chaos. Welcome to everyone’s everyday.
