Hunter struggles coping with the death of a loved one. 

Director Statement

Grief can be sort of like a relationship. You have to work on it, communicate with it, accept it, and grow from it. While death surrounds us all the time, especially now during hard times, grief can often be neglected and put to the side. And when grief isn't nurtured and taken care of, it tends to creep up behind us when we're not paying attention.

Like relationships, grief is different for everyone. By the time I was 22, I had gone to more funerals than I count. For me, grief is numbness. Grief is acceptance. And death, well death doesn't scare me anymore, but grief does. 

In this film, I want you to think about what grief means to you.
