Anderson is completely devoid of glitz and glammed-out artifice in her poignant portrayal as Jackie; a health and wellness obsessed spin instructor desperately seeking fulfillment in her life.

Connected is a brutally introspective slice-of-life science fiction story that critiques the promises of youth and fulfillment proffered by the fitness and self-help industries.
Promises that often leave many feeling inadequate and adrift.
I highly recommend this affecting short film due to its social commentary, as well as the revelatory and brave performance by Anderson.
Warning: due to a scene of brief nudity, this film isn't appropriate for all ages, and is NSFW.
