»I had a miscarriage while attending a film festival in 2016. This is a story about bad timing, ignorance, public isolation, choice, and the taboo.« (Lori Felker)

Lori Felker tells us about her miscarriage during the premiere of one of her short films at the Slamdance Film Festival. The film masterfully alternates between this tragedy and the festival atmosphere with its premiere parties and big public presence.
