As a woman that has experienced such sorrow, this movie immediately catches your heart and acknowledges all the emotions grief leaves in its wake. The piece is also superbly balanced to relate to even those individuals that have yet to experience the emotion. Grief is universal and this movie beautifully illustrates such a sorrowful topic. It's amazing what meaning is delivered in such a short film. Masterfully written, directed, filmed and set to music. A must see!
