Overview:

This film is a story that explores the emotional interaction between the living and the dead. Taking place in an alter dimension where communication is possible between the two worlds, the film explores the interaction between Richard, whom recently passed away due to a heart attack, and his living family members. While the interaction is existent in this dimension, in a way it is interpreted differently, as Richard was the only one who could see, feel, and hear everything his family had to say. The story courses through emotional and heartfelt interactions with his daughters (Jule, Emma), son (Jack), and wife (Candace). This film aims to show the range of outlooks people have towards death but also, how different people’s perspectives on the same person can show the multifaceted quality of a deceased person’s identity.
