Based on a powerful true story, "Girl on the Edge" recounts the journey of Hannah Green, a 15-year-old girl who is victimized by an online predator. In “Girl on the Edge,” the Hannah character is portrayed by Taylor Spreitler, star of the ABC Family Channel TV series “Melissa and Joey,” winner of a 2015 People’s Choice Award for “Best Comedy Series on Cable Television.”
Unable to cope with the resulting trauma, Hannah Green's behavior becomes increasingly self-destructive until her family is left with no choice but to send her to a treatment center for troubled youth. Hannah's transition is turbulent, and she refuses to cooperate, until she finds a kindred spirit with its most unlikely patient. With the help of her mentors and the horse she's formed a bond with, Hannah realizes painful truths about her past, and begins to face her uncertain future.
Executive produced and directed by Jay Silverman (a multi-award winning director of TV commercials, and Executive Producer and Co-Creator of A&E’s “The Cleaner” with Benjamin Bratt), “Girl on the Edge” was produced by Keefe Kaupanger-Swacker and Will Newman, and co-produced by Bethany Cerrona and Joe Gamache for Jay Silverman Productions. Casting was by Nick Anderson.
Said Silverman, "To tell a story as sensitive and emotional as this has moved me beyond words. This film is based on a story that's deeply personal to me. It shows how even the most vulnerable can find the strength to overcome unthinkable tragedies, and pays tribute to the people who dedicate themselves to helping them find that strength."
