A grieving couple struggle to connect and heal following the loss of their child.


Witnessing another mother's distress in a playground sends Sarah into a spiral of panic and grief. Her husband, Paul, tries to provide the emotional and practical support she needs as the chasm between them widens. After struggling for so long to keep his own vulnerabilities hidden, Paul's eventual emotional breakdown offers them both a chance to connect and heal over the loss of their own child.
