About this submission

The concept of this story began with the question: What would happen if two friends switched bodies and one of them died immediately after, forcing the survivor to watch their own body die in front of them with their friend inside? How would they react/mourn? As time went on, I realized the potential of this story as journey exploring how grief affects us, no matter the situation. As the Writer/Narrator/Director, I shifted towards a greater metaphor of loss: How the loss of someone close can result in a loss of oneself - something we are all bound to experience.
