I had the privilege of seeing this film at Beaufort International Film Festival in South Carolina (the world premier). It had me in tears (a tall order for a 15 minute film!) and the audience was clearly as touched as I it truly was an amazing film with a theme everyone can relate to...looking for someone to listen, grief and loss. The quality is top notch from all perspectives. The actors are incredibly talented. The music moved the story along brilliantly. It was a simple, thought provoking film with a poignant reminder for all of us it makes you stop and think about the times in your life when you could have made a difference in someone else's life by simply listening. I will definitely be following this film through the festival circuit!
