Shorts Programs / 92 minsWe’ll be just fine, pretending we’re not, we’re far from lonely, and it’s all that we’ve got. Whether in the city, or the suburbs, these stories behind and front of the camera showcases families in their elements; antagonizing, struggling, overcoming, supporting, and loving. — Kirby Peñafiel
