COMMUNICATE

“I should have mentioned it before, my Mum, she, last year, she passed”. James is suffocated by his past. Based on true events, this is one couple’s journey through bereavement, love, pregnancy, superheroes and enforced pen maintenance. It’s a story about the importance of talking, opening up and grieving at the right time and about not letting your past determine your future. An intimate and gripping account of life and death, developed in association with Cruse Bereavement Care.
