CGiii Comment

All this film needed: A tripod, a decent editor...and, a camera...that didn't record its background noise.

These are things that talented filmmakers should think about...before they make a film!

The(ir) Blurb...

On the eve of her wedding anniversary, empty-nester Sujata Chopra attempts to find some joy in her broken marriage, until she learns about the passing of her childhood companion's spouse on Facebook. Having been disconnected from this woman for over 30 years over a misunderstanding, Sujata finds the courage to reach out to send her condolences. They reconnect, sparking friction when Sujata's controlling husband, Dr. Chopra, finds out.
