“We are all going to experience, or have experienced, the death of our parents. For many, being intimate with the actual dying process often creates uncomfortable and horrific situations. In addition, death tends to bring families in close proximity, yet doesn’t necessarily create actual closeness. We wanted to explore a side of this very universal experience that is not often depicted. Our hope is that people might leave this story asking themselves about their own feelings surrounding the death of one’s parents.”
