To Here Knows When

Tweetable Logline: “To Here Knows When” is a young adult film that looks at cancer and dying from a different perspective.

Elevator Pitch: What happens when two young women are told that those boobs men drool over are filled to the nipple with cancer? Cassie has played it by the book her entire life, while Lena has never taken a day in her life seriously. Bound by a tragic fate delivered at the hands of death, they reject western medicine’s soul-sucking “treatment,” cash it all in and just drive. “To Here Knows When” is a gut-wrenching story about the discovery of truth, beauty and purpose and a not so gentle reminder that death has no dignity.

Production Team: 
Justin Isfeld – Director
Devin Keebler – Cinematographer

About the film: The story is told through the relationship of two women, which is a representation of the human experience and humanity’s ability to endure. It shows how by acknowledging the undiscerning cruelty of reality we can embrace life, and with that comes peace. It is a timeless story that everyone should experience. This film will force you to break free from the mundane cycle of everyday life and challenge you to be present in each moment.

Current Status: “To Here Knows When” is in pre-production and is currently fundraising on Kickstarter. The film is scheduled to shoot in October 2014.
