Without You is a USC graduate thesis film about family, acceptance,
and the fear of being alone. After her husband receives a fatal
prognosis, a pregnant Samantha Jackson is determined to fight for her
husband’s life. That’s why she has left his bedside, to plead with the
board at St. Jude’s Hospital to put her husband at the top of the donor

return and find a way to cope with her inevitable loss? This is the
story of Without You.

About the Production:

“Upon reviewing multiple scripts for this thesis film, we were
always returning to Without You. Not only is it an amazing script and a
touching story, but we started to realize that this was a film that
could really make a difference in people’s lives. After doing the
research into lung cancer, its effects, and the staggering statistics
surrounding this terrible disease, we realized that this film could be a
whole lot more than just another movie. We want this film to be used
to raise lung cancer awareness and eventually raise funds for lung
cancer research.” — Ronald Brooks

Current Status:
