| Powerful short
I recently viewed this powerful short via IndieFlix. Incredible. The raw emotion conveyed in 17 minutes, particularly by the two leads, Sheetal Sheth and Andrew Fognani, is outstanding and incredibly moving.

I could never begin to imagine the reality of war and the horrors that civilians and active duty, or veteran military personnel, undergo on a daily basis. Nor could I ever imagine the pain and agony felt on an emotional and physical level, by those affected by war on a daily basis.

Reign touches upon these tragic themes and those universal conflicts inherent in war. We see Fadwa, a civilian (played by the incredibly versatile actress Sheetal Sheth) become so deeply distraught, vulnerable and incredibly lost and heartbroken. We see Delano, an American soldier (played by the talented Andrew Fognani) face a personal crisis with a choice he's made that changes his life, forever.

This film and these actors tell a most tragic story with such depth and intensity, I felt as though I journeyed with them to a very dark place- a place no one should have to journey to. But they do. And the realities of this place are horrific.

Excellent direction and execution Ms. Jentzen and kudos to you and all for creating this poignant, exceptional short. A must see!
