Our goal is to tell an inspiring story that will help parents, caregivers, and educators reflect on their own heroism and survival. Our intimate, 27 minute personal documentary brings you into our family’s home as household roles are upended and we struggle to thrive in a pressure-cooker. Our story illuminates the challenges parents often face to support children.

In this moment of collective recovery from years of disruption, isolation and a loss of community connectedness, we hope that sharing our own family’s personal narrative will inspire important, restorative conversations.
