The film is "in the can" and additional funding has been received to prepare the film for release. To see a video about this movie please click The Making of "Return To Zero". While this film is intended for a wide-release to audiences regardless of their life experience, RETURN TO ZERO fills a particular niche for a market that has gone under served – those who have or know someone who has experienced the devastating loss of stillbirth, miscarriage or neonatal death.
The statistics on stillbirth, which is the loss of a child after 20th week of pregnancy, are remarkable. In the U.S. alone there are approximately 26,000 stillbirths a year. A baby is stillborn in the USA every 20 seconds. That is equivalent to the amount of people who die in traffic accidents across this country every year. Yet, this topic has never been the central theme of a feature film.
The impact that one stillbirth has on the mother, the father, their family, and friends is devastating – a shock-wave of pain, guilt and then, too often, silence. The majority of those affected. Expecially the mothers, suffer in this silence often believing that their grief and trauma is theirs to bear alone.
While planning to entertain and enlighten all audiences with a dramatic tale of the strength and resilience of the human spirit, RETURN TO ZERO intends to break through the silence and become a beacon of cinematic light to the millions in search of answers, understanding and healing.
