Joy is haunted by the memory of a tragic accident she caused when her daughter Callie was an infant. Putting her to bed one night, Joy invents a story about a robin family whose chick falls from the nest. As she listens, Callie senses something darker playing out in her mother’s mind. Her persistent questions push Joy into dangerous territory as the story becomes a dramatic confession. But Callie’s surprising response reveals the power of forgiveness to heal the deepest wounds.
Based on a true story, UNBURDEN explores the human need to own up to one’s actions, let go of the guilt and move on.
