“…I know what it’s like to bury a child. I know what it’s like to pick out her favorite dress to wear as she lay cold in her casket. I know the feeling of having to choose my own attire to wear to my child’s funeral. I know the feeling of watching my wife succumb to a heated mess as she picks out her own dress to wear and no matter how hard I try I cannot ease her pain. I know how it feels to have to force myself to breathe for months on end. I will never forget the smell of freshly dug dirt or the smell of freshly cut flowers as I visit my daughters grave. I also know what it’s like to live with trauma that will never go away…”

The thread that held all of us
together had been cut.
We were unraveling … 

Richard and Kate had it all …

The perfect marriage, the largest Victorian house in the county and two beautiful daughters, Alexa and Hanna. Life was beautiful and perfect.  But like a ticking clock that lost its time, in a split second, the life they had, unraveled all around them as they buried their beloved Alexa.

Life was never the same. How could it be? Once you bury a child you lose at life, right? You’re empty, broken, numb and … changed. The death of Alexa changed Hanna, Kate and Richard.

But what would you do if life wasn’t what you thought it was?

What if you were oblivious to everything happening around you, unaware that what you’re living  is, in fact, . . . Not your reality?

Follow the story of Hanna, Kate & Richard as they hold onto the thread that extends from the life they once knew to the life that is now their reality.
