Forever Home

By Nina Louise Morrison • Directed by Portia Krieger

When Ror comes home to help her father bury his best friend, she discovers he is facing the threat of even bigger losses than she realized. As her father’s world falls into deeper and deeper disarray, Ror must salvage what she can from her past before it’s gone. Forever Home examines how we deal with great change, how we falter, and how to not let what's broken break you.
