Mourning teenager goes away to girls camp in ‘Once I Was A Beehive’

A 16-year-old girl still reeling from the death of her father goes away to a bible-themed girls summer camp with her Mormon step-aunt in the feature film Once I Was A Beehive.

The movie, which opens in Utah theaters today, and in select theaters in other parts of the country in September, stars Paris Warner as the film’s main character, Lane Speer. In the movie, Speer’s father dies of cancer, her mom remarries a Mormon guy and she ends up going to a girls camp with a cast of characters while her mom and step-dad are away on their honeymoon.

The film was written and directed by Maclain Nelson (The Saratov Approach, Vamp U and Dragonfyre) and also stars Lisa Clark and Hailey Smith.
