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. Whether the grief is from the loss of a parent, a bunny, an amputated leg or a good friend by suicide, each person’s story rings familiar with anyone who has had to overcome a loss of their own.

The film is now used in educational programs as a starting point to discuss the process of grief and what some of the positive outcomes of grief can be.

There’s something powerful about listening to someone’s raw pain at 0:40…
