This is a short film focused on Anya, a socially anxious student who is forced to come to a catchup class for not paying attention during school time. After wondering if anyone could mindread, Anya screams in her mind to try and gain a reaction from other students in the class. After another student Darcie flinches, Anya now has to figure out where to go from here...

Title: Facial Action Coding System

This film is heavily artistic and quirky, taking a lot of inspiration from 'Wes Anderson films, while still maintaining the personal style of the filmmakers producing it... Overall though this is a short film made to make you smile.
