Separation Anxiety traces the friendship of three twenty-something childhood pals, Quinn, Jess, and Bailey...beginning on the morning of Bailey's funeral. In what appears to be a fatal accident, Bailey fell off the dam where he used to hang out, and the shock of the event devastates everyone close to him in different ways. Quinn, having left their hometown years ago for a job out west, is forced to deal with his grief while stranded at the airport, while Jess spends the morning with Bailey's father, trying to make sense of the tragedy.

As the people who loved Bailey the most ... Written by
