RETURN TO ZERO is based on the true story of a successful couple preparing for the arrival of their first child. Just weeks before their due date they discover that their son has died in the womb and will be stillborn. Lives and relationship forever altered by the loss, they try to cope through denial, escape, alcohol and an affair, but nothing can save their marriage. And that's when they discover that they're again pregnant (from a last ditch 'save the marriage' getaway to Las Vegas), and must come together to face a turbulent and terrifying pregnancy.

Important movie!!
16 June 2014 | by zensi67See all my reviews

I finally feel validated!! This deeply personal movie was needed! You see, my husband I lost our daughter at 41 weeks. It was a healthy, uneventful, normal pregnancy! One day all was fine, the next day I went into labor and all was lost! When you hear the words "there is no cardiac activity", all the world comes to a standstill. Nothing is as it used to be. Normal is gone, a new normal is beginning. It starts with giving birth to a lifeless, beautiful, healthy looking, but oh so lifeless child, and "ends" with living every day with the truth of having birthed this beautiful girl. Missing her in every way! Being "just fine" for hours, then days, weeks, and months, only to feel overwhelmed by this grief again, this sadness, anger, all stages of grief! This movie validates and puts words to my thoughts, my emotions, and those of my husband! We were lucky enough to donate to this movie, so we could see our gorgeous daughter's name in the credits. I cried the entire movie. This truly did happen to me! Yes it did, almost 11 years ago. And though it has been so very long, this pain is still raw at times. This story needed to be told! Thank you, Sean Hanish for giving us a voice. Us as parents, us as a community, and our babies. Thank you Minnie Driver, Paul Adelstein, and all you wonderful actors for the extremely true to life portrayals! Thank you, from the bottoms of our hearts!
