ABOUT MARY MEET GRACE

​        A young woman gets a phone call from a stranger saying that the birth mother she never knew has died. She accompanies him into the desert to spread her mother’s ashes. Along the way she discovers dangerous truths from which she fights to untangle herself.

 

        Inspired by Faryl’s own experience reuniting with her birth mother, the seed of this story lies in the intense yearning of an adoptee to know more about their past.

         "This short is a whole film, and doesn’t cut any corners. The cinematography
is glorious."

 – Jennifer Dehglan, Filmmaker, Production Designer, Art Director

         “The entire plot hinges on that simple moment, to go or stay. A perfect nightmare brought to life, somehow totally believable.”

– Joe Maggio, Filmmaker
