"Forty Years from Yesterday"
When Suzette passes away, her husband Bruce is forced to face the inevitable questions we spend our lives avoiding.
The film follows Bruce as he begins to learn what happens to one's persona when they loose the one they have shared their life with, and the impact of one death on a whole community.
The script is Robert Machoian's imagination of how his mother's death would unfold for his own family, capturing the loss his siblings would feel in losing a parent and his father's pain in facing the death of his partner. This film will allow us to explore very personal subject matter, which nevertheless speaks to universal experiences.
"As we grow older, the thought of losing one of our parents, or even our own partner, becomes more pertinent. This film, through our exploration of how we might deal with such a tragedy ourselves, will bring the audience to reflect on the losses they have faced in the past and those they will have to face in the future." - Robert Machoian
