As the artist in residence with the Friends of the University Hospitals with Transplant Services, I began my research talking with organ and tissue donor families. They were difficult conversations. In the first meeting a mother told me about how her husband suffered from depression and soon committed suicide. Her two children were incredibly young at the time but are now adults. Her oldest is now trying to get to know her father. Would they like the same music? The same movies? Would he like who she has become?
This conversation, along with many others, framed what this movie would become. I wrote it and directed it with my closest friend Kyle Terrence.
