In Loving Memory

Directed by Diana Bang, Mayumi Yoshida

Cast: Andrea Bang, Susan Hanson

Having been fatherless almost her entire life, Kaylie would have it no other way. But with the recent death of her biological dad, hidden pent-up emotions are brought to the surface when her mom forces her to attend his wake with the promise of an inheritance.

At the wake, awkwardness is in full force when questions and expectations arise about the man she barely knew. Everyone seems to know him better than she did, his own DNA. As Kaylie’s unresolved emotions creep further to the surface, so does her need to connect to her dad. Now she must navigate decades of grief and neglect as family secrets are revealed and discoveries are made.
