Director Statement

This film has one goal, and that's to let everyone know it's alright to let go and grieve. It's not an easy process for anyone but can be especially harmful to those that neglect the process. I chose the cast and crew carefully in order to bring this story to life. In the end, we made a very thoughtful and emotional film.
