About this submission

I chose to tell this specific story to shed light onto complex family dynamics, specifically between two brothers. The main characters go through a tragic loss, but despite this they're not looking to mourn with one another. Blocking themselves from recovery, the brothers let their pride get in the way. I find this dynamic powerful and wanted to explore themes of grief and family. This story is inspired by events of my dad and his relationship with his younger brother.
