Bloom follows the life of Sierra Schlag as she navigates the world after losing her father on 9/11. As Sierra matures, she explores her grief and identity as a Japanese-American and finds herself under the cloak of depression. While she navigates these complexities, Sierra finds a way to connect with her dad and heal through skiing. 


“Grow forward towards the light to bloom.”

Bloom premiered at evo Salt Lake and evo Denver with a huge turnout of supportersgathered to meet Sierra and attend a free ladies wax clinic.
