Return to Zero is a new feature film produced by Sean Hanish (writer/director/producer) and is based on his own experience of stillbirth after his wife lost their baby son in 2005. The story centres around a successful couple whose baby dies just weeks before the due date.
The movie’s cast includes Minnie Driver, as mum Maggie, and dad Aaron is played by Paul Adelstein. In the US alone over 36,000 stillbirths occur each year, and it seems according to Hanish its time to break the silence on stillbirth! Currently it has been shown at movie festivals and Hanish is currently looking for a distributor for the film.
A strong presence via social media including twitter https://twitter.com/return2zerofilm and facebook https://www.facebook.com/returntozerofilm is spreading a strong message to Hollywood. Through it’s Local Leaders around the world this movie indeed is the platform and there is an audience ready to support and view it.
