WANNABE tells the story of a young talentless desperate girl , who aspires to have her own youtube channel. A real and fantastic performance by the lead and directors effectiveness in managing to let her sad despair mount on us makes it even more affecting. Nothing major happens but in the course of these 30 minutes we live through her day to day disappointments until we finally realize there is no redemption.
