Letting Go


'Letting Go' is a short film about a tough-minded girl who goes through different stages of grief after the death of someone important to her until she discovers it is OK to go on as the land around her goes on. After the old farmer dies, the girl goes through shock and denial, pain and anger, trying to bargain with God, feeling lonely and lost, until she finally reaches a place of acceptance about the event. Experiencing her environment -- the natural order of Mother Nature -- around her every day eventually led the girl to be able to let the old man go. The journey through the stages of grief carried the young girl into the beginnings of becoming a young woman.
