My film about finding love and acceptance through trauma.


I am thrilled (and totally nervous) to share with you that I have a film, Cracked, coming out later this year!!! YES! A film!!!

Cracked is a short documentary about my journey finding love and acceptance of my father through the trauma caused by his experience with schizophrenia. Check out the trailer below.

This has been a lifetime in the making because I needed to heal enough to be able to share this with the world. My deepest desire is that our journey can inspire hope and healing for others who feel lost and alone in their life.

I will be doing a number of short videos on my YouTube channel (Jessica Zemple) to share more stories as we ramp up for the launch later this year…

  • All of the steps I have taken to heal from the trauma (there have been MANY!!!)
  • The gifts I received from all of the grit (like the courage to travel the world solo!)
  • What it was like reconnecting with my father after 25 years
  • Why I felt like I was betraying my family
  • Why I did this film now
  • And more…

What I would LOVE from all of you…

  • Let me know what you would like to hear. I do this work for all of you and it only gets better with your input.
  • If you want to sponsor a private showing before the launch later this year let me know.
  • Share this newsletter so I can reach those that need to hear this the most
  • Please, please, please subscribe to my YouTube channel (Jessica Zemple) and add comments if you are so inspired. Not only will you be in the know when all my videos are released, I need to get to 1,000 subscribers before my launch to help my message get amplified on YouTube.

A HUGE thank you to my family for not only supporting me on this mission, but giving me a solid foundation to focus on healing and growth to be where I am now.

If you or your loved ones have been touched by schizophrenia or any other mental health issues, I see you and am here to support you. Keep going. Keep asking for help. And, if you have no idea what your next step is, please reach out to me for ideas.
