Swear by Apollo, is a short film that delves into present day ethnic tensions and shines a light on the dark corners of our individual and collective psyche. As seen through the eyes of a Latina doctor, who has suffered a devastating personal loss and a seemingly normal youth from Clearhill High School besieged by racial hatred, we journey into their inner worlds and lay witness to the consequences of their most intimate thoughts. Dramatic life events thrust them into an unfathomable situation where a doctor must choose between succumbing to overwhelming rage or staying faithful to the principles embodied by the Hippocratic oath.
