A teenage boy must find the strength to face the gravity of his mother’s illness, despite fear, doubt, and an overbearing father.
Director: David Traub
I’ve seen a lot of films talk about death, but I’ve seen very few that are completely honest about it, and I’ve never seen it on-screen the way I’ve seen it in real life. We have such a rare opportunity here to tell a story that has the power to touch everyone, because it is about something that affects us all.
Like it or not, whether we want to talk about it or not, we are all afraid of death. And we are often even more afraid that it will come for the ones we love than for us. We’re afraid of suffering. We don’t want our parents, children, brothers and sisters to suffer. And we all would fight tooth and nail to protect them.
UNCONDITIONAL is a story about that fight, about that fear, about that impending grief.
