The primary motivation of the film is to educate the viewer on the topic of borderline personality disorder or BPD. Depending on the intensity of the condition, BPD can be severely debilitating for someone who battles it, along with being hugely intensive and demanding an experience for the carers as well. The short film, equipped with camerawork and visuals that exhibit skill and sincerity, is an engagement with the same issue. Its protagonist, Amy, is a young woman who struggles to cope with her circumstance, and despite the best efforts of those around her, she still finds herself drowning in hopelessness and despair.

Happy B'day, Amy brings this reality to life to elucidate its point. By tying together different elements of storytelling and filmmaking, combinations that are sometimes marked by a little dissonance within the narrative, one of the many aspects and issues pertaining to mental health is shared with the audience.
