The perfect short film!
7 January 2015 | by tairenee-994-184666See all my reviews

I saw this film at Tropfest 2013. I loved this film. There are so many meaningless shorts out there that feel like they are just a chunk of a bigger film. Inside not so. An amazing piece of filmmaking, rich in layers, with a morbidly disguised storyline (and good message) with some black humor thrown into the mix to add even more to the film. The acting is amazing by the entire cast, especially the lead actress, Shannon Ashlyn, who has no lines, but every scream, every tear, every expression that we see from her is believable and heartbreaking. The doctors are great to, adding some humor to the mix. The production quality is top-notch as is the production design (made on a budget of $2000 if you believe the information on this page). It is very well written and the direction is superb, with great pacing. The ending is amazing and will bring a tear to your eye. It did for me. A must watch!
