DURING A SEPARATION, WE MUST ASK OURSELVES THIS QUESTION

When a marriage ends, where do you begin?

Separation is never easy. Many of the obstacles and decisions you must face can be made far easier when you have practical information.

Behind the Scenes

Producing this independent film is a part of the director’s own personal story of conquering her separation and documenting the research, interviews, and filming over a 4 year period is as much a part of the documentary as the stories themselves.
