Private Project

The Pact

Looking through the lens of someone who has had a lifetime of her choices being dictated by others, Fran has the compelling urgency to take control of her life to prevent it from disappearing under the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. She realizes that, as some control erodes, other issues rise to the surface and demand attention and makes the most consequential decision of her life but her son Terry struggles to accept it.

The Pact brings us the rarely seen side of a story that is far too familiar to many of us. I hope that our film serves as a starter for those much needed but very seldom held conversations.
