Outstanding workmanship in terms of casting, acting, camera angels and pacing. Music was skillfully used to set and shift the mood. Helpful to open the can of worms named grief that most people deny. It would have helped to have a brief shot of a coffin or grave side after the initial bed side scene. I needed to read the synopsis to understand what was happening until the neighbor came.

Thanks so much! I would show it to your wife and see what she thinks. I believe that the best way of dealing with the grief of death is looking at it straight on and talking about it. What better way to get discussion going than I short film?

A wonderful way to capture the grief that we all have to face at sometime or another. I lost my father-in-law two years ago and I still go through the emotions that are captured in this short. Thanks. (Do I dare share it with my mother-in-law?)
