Victoria Mapplebeck found her old Nokia phone and charged it up to see what data it contained. There were 100 texts from a man she dated for some time. Those, along with a Christmas card, two emails, a set of baby pajamas, and a paternity test were all she had left of her son's father. So she made a short film with the texts piecing the story together.
