A coming of age cinepoem finding relief from sorrow & mourning inside an interfaith chapel, outside surrounded by serene nature, and within the deep meditative wisdom of Thich Nhat Hanh's book, "No Death, No Fear: Comforting Wisdom for Life."

Filmed on my birthday in 2005, completed editorial on my grandmother, Anne's, birthday, then premiered that evening at the Honey & Buddy Cinematography Film Festival at Ithaca College.
