Aggressively Compassionate presents
A young woman links minds with her boyfriend using a device that lets couples relive shared memories— but when she spots overlooked signs of abuse, she must wake herself up to escape before he can manipulate her memories in his favor.

The Last Drop is a 30-minute sci-fi film that aims to show young people what abuse looks like before it turns violent and kickstart a national conversation about relationship safety.

The Issue

We don’t teach young people the early signs of relationship abuse, so they often suffer immense trauma before they even know what’s happening.

Why now?

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, reported cases of domestic abuse have risen by 20% worldwide, leading the UN to declare the rise in domestic abuse a concurrent “shadow pandemic.”

How You Can Help

We want to partner with stakeholders, educators and abuse experts who can help shape and spread our film’s impact campaign


Your support would be crucial in reaching our goal and sharing this vital project with the world. To date, we’ve secured nonprofit fiscal sponsorship with Full Spectrum Features and raised over 80% of our $139K budget from a mix of private donors, the IL Film tax credit, and our Kickstarter.
We’re looking for partners like you who can help bring this project to life either through direct funding, distribution partnerships, or both! This film fills a massive gap in media portrayals of abuse, and we believe it can have a profound impact on the way young people see love and abuse.
