Set in the world of the Oscar-nominated series Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the short shows a day in the life of Miles, who comes back home from school feeling extremely overwhelmed by his responsibilities as a teenager, student and as Brooklyn’s friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man. He refuses to binge-watch horror movies with his father, who had hoped to spend some time with him, and instead goes back to his room to sleep. But he experiences a panic attack in the middle of the night due to stress and anxiety. He eventually realises that even a superhero like him needs to reach out for help for physical manifestation of anxiety.

The Spider-Verse animated story is a part of Kevin Love Fund’s new mental health-focused lesson plan, The Hero Within, aimed at the well-being of students.

“Miles represents so many of us doing the best we can in our day-to-day lives,” said The Spider Within director Jarelle Dampier in a statement. “We don’t often realise all that we’ve been through until our own body forces us to become aware of its experience,” he added.

Written by Khaila Amazan, The Spider Within: A Spider-Verse Story is produced by LENS program creators Michelle Raimo-Kouyate and David Schulenburg.
