The seed of this film was planted in the winter of 2010. After working together on John Gould Rubin’s Hedda Gabler in New York, six women convened around their shared artistic spirit with a profound appreciation for one another’s diverse voices. Caitlin FitzGerald had always wanted to make a film in her hometown of Camden, Maine. She and Caroline von Kuhn had great interest in writing a script together to showcase and collaborate with this inspiring group of women. Caitlin and Caroline discovered a deeply formative shared story: both lost lifelong friends in their early twenties. Both had found that encountering death at a young age, especially of a contemporary, provoked a seismic shift in the way they came to understand the world. They had not only shared experiences of grief, but had turned to writing in a therapeutic attempt to capture and express something ultimately inchoate: the memory of a life.
