CW: SUICIDE, MENTAL HEALTH, DEPRESSION, GUNS.
This is a drama and satire short in progress about a Mexican family gathering. When one big family secret is revealed, the rest is surely to follow...
Based on an interview with my mother and real-life events. Character-heavy, dialogue-focused. Hopefully a snippet in the day of a crazy life of a traditional family dealing with a tragedy their culture does not prepare them for.
