Description

Sometimes things fall apart and we have to find a way to pick up the pieces. This collection of shorts explores the complexity of dealing with loss from grieving a loved one and surviving a tragedy to finding beauty in something that is over before it truly begins. In JERKY, a recent widower struggles to heal while learning to care for his late husband’s dog. DYLAN DYLAN tells the story of two men struggling to understand each other’s emotions after the tragic loss of their foster son Dylan. We get some comedic relief with local filmmaker Todd Lillethun’s THE QUIT, about the trials and tribulations of smoking cessation; but we see the darker side of addiction in GRIP. In SARIWALA, a poor boy is crushed to lose his prized possession to someone who doesn’t understand its true value; and in 49, four strangers reeling from a large scale attack must come together and help one another heal through love, acceptance, and understanding.
