Cannot believe this is this guys' first film... very accomplished
Caught this short at a festival screening and was amazed when the director admitted it was his first film. The painful story of a mother not able to let go of her son is laced with expertly executed comedic touches. While the plot teaches us a subtle lesson about the necessary acceptance of life's random blows, the shooting reinforces the beauty of life worth living for any amount of time, however short that time may be cut. Thank you, Mr. Domahidy for a sensitive and skilled hand at work in telling this difficult tale in a way that simultaneously manages to recognize and to heal the wounds of fate.
