About the Production:

“Anyone who’s lost someone dear to them knows what a roller coaster it can be. You’re crushed with sadness even as you laugh uproariously at the good times you shared. I wanted to make a movie that reflects these ups-and-downs in grieving for a loved one. I hope folks will join us for the ride.” — J.P. Chan
