Synopsis: This arthouse film takes viewers on a journey through one of the most challenging and unprecedented times in recent history.
After losing 20 loved ones to COVID in 2020, I didn’t know how I would wake up and face each day. The most heartbreaking losses were my uncle and my grandfather. My uncle and I shared a birthday. We had a longstanding tradition each year of trying to be the first one to wish the other a happy birthday. He passed away from COVID complications one week before Thanksgiving. Nearly one month later, my grandfather, a Veteran, passed away on Christmas Day. This film was lovingly produced in their memory and to honor all lives impacted by the year that was 2020…
