Great short
24 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was able to catch this short at the North West Ohio Film Festival. Really solid work from all involved. The central performance by Cheryl Allison as a mother dealing with her child's mental illness was particularly effective. I would highly recommend this short. It was filmed gorgeously and contained an emotional punch at the end. I was not expecting where it would go in such a short time. Not sure how shorts are distributed. But I could see this as a feature film one day perhaps. Certainly not a feel good movie. But it contains statistics that people need to know. Also good performances from the two younger actors. Overall a very good film.
