Director Statement

While the events in this story are fictitious, the lingering emotional state and struggle the characters face come from a place in my own life, as well as those around me, who have struggled with depression and a loss of hope. Bare Bones aims to ask the question: when tragedy strikes, how do we muster up the motivation to move onward?
