About this submission

Words linger in life's rearview mirror. After my step-dad passed unexpectedly, that truth weighed heavily. In the ensuing solitude, I sought solace but found no resources to guide me. No film or TV content mirrored the reality of grief. That's when I realized the disparity in mental health portrayal—shy in authenticity yet susceptible to exploitation in the film world. Fueled by this realization, I embarked on a mission to create a film resonating with real experiences, giving voice to the voiceless amidst loss.
