To those We leave behind

Two estranged sisters must put their differences aside to fulfill their deceased father’s last wish.

Since their father passed away from cancer, one of two sisters left their family behind to search for luck elsewhere, which caused a massive feud between the sisters. When their father asks them in a letter to scatter his ashes across the sea, both agree to go on this journey together, to finally bring peace to the family. A story about alienation, reconciliation and redemption.
