Storyline

Keith Bennets mother passed away a year ago, and he feels like he has moved on with his life, until one morning his mothers jewelry shows up on Keiths bathroom sink. The same jewelry she was buried in. Keith tells his wife Karen, about the jewelry and that is the last straw. She claims he is distant and has shut her out. Now he thinks he is seeing things that aren't there and if things don't improve, she will take their only son and leave. Forced with the ultimatum, Keith launches himself on a day of reclamation. Keith winds up on the phone with a popular radio Psychiatrist who guides Keith through what he cannot see on his own. Keith discovers a new man and a new attitude. Several people are listening to Keith's plight on the radio and are making changes of their own. Is this dead visitor all in Keith's head or is she truly a Mother Ghost? Written by Mark Thompson

Trivia

Mark Thompson's original storyline was an eleven-page script he wrote as part of his acting class. At the time, his mother was terminally ill, and he wrote all the things he might wish he had said after she passed away. Thompson showed it to director Rich Thorne, who suggested that he take it out to feature length. The film itself was shot on weekends in late 2001 and early 2002. During that time, Mark Thompson's sister died; his father passed away shortly after production wrapped. Also during that time, both of Rich Thorne's parents died in a period of less than two weeks.

More than meets the eye!
17 April 2002 | by (Santa Fe, USA) – See all my reviews

I screened the world premiere of this movie at the Taos Talking Pictures Festival. I would like to say that this film was one of the better films that I saw at the festival. It is chalk full of emotional queues from parts that make you laugh to parts that make you cry. The character Keith learns much emotional growth in the film, and in turn I feel that he brings that growth to the audience as well. Make no mistake this one's going to make it. Good luck Mark, Rich, and Rod! You deserve the best from this wonderful piece of art.

Your friend,

Stephen Stone
