A Bittersweet Goodbye

Sometimes, there is no "see you later". Sometimes, a person's time on this earth is limited. After a tragic accident, a girl must learn to move on or be lost in the past. But how can she move on when she hasn't even come to terms with what happened yet? This short film is all about the road to recovery, and how in just a few seconds, your life can change for the better, or worse. Learning to cope isn't easy, but it has to happen at some point.
