An eleven-year-old meets with a grief counsellor as she comes to terms with the death of her best friend, but finds she can't keep anything secret from him.​

Inspired by the song of the same name by Talis Kimberley, who contributed a new version of the song ​to the credits sequence. 

Dead Susan explores the end of childhood and the innocence associated with it, with the often intense nature of childhood female friendship taken to a dramatic extreme.
