Stigma. Silence. Simply impossible to say the right thing.
All of these surround the topic of neonatal death, miscarriage, and stillbirth.
Tonight, a film determines to shatter all that.
Return to Zero tells the story of a couple expecting their first child, whom they are devastated to discover has died before he could even be born. It is the first feature film to tackle the uncomfortable and uncovered story of this type of tragedy.
Perhaps no one wants to watch a film with such a difficult plot, but certainly no parent wants to find themselves playing the starring role. Just as we all find comfort and empowerment in reading our story on the page, finding our face on the screen, this film should prove powerful – and hopefully therapeutic – for parents who have been silenced by the horrific events of stillbirth.
