To deal with her mother’s death, she asked others about their grief. Then, she animated them.

After losing her mother, director Fiona Dalwood dealt with the ensuing grief by exploring how the experience of loss transforms us.

The result is a remarkably powerful and touching animated short, showing how five people cope with death.
