GLACIERS (2018)

The Synopsis –

Glaciers is the story of a young married couple who have recently survived ovarian cancer. We follow the couple as they struggle to define their relationship after such a life-altering event.

Although they have managed to come out on the other side, it has not been unscathed. They are not the same people they were before the diagnosis and everything feels different now.

Michael always thought that he would be father, but now even if they could have children of their own he is unsure whether he would be able to support them with the crushing weight of never ending medical bills.

Gretchen feels struggles with her new label as a “survivor”, challenged to grasp her lost identity and to connect with a body she no longer identifies as her own.

Will they be able to navigate their new reality as a united front, or, like the once prominent glaciers, will their bond slowly dissolve in the light of their new environment?

The Author

Glaciers was one of the first stories I wrote for what became the collection, Nothing but the Dead and Dying. Even now, more than eight years after writing that first draft, it remains one of my favorite things I’ve written. The story truly represents the collection and the themes I am most concerned with in my writing, primarily how people manage to deal with and (sometimes) overcome all the struggles that life brings. Having this story brought to life in a new medium is exciting, to see the characters whose pain feels very real to me come to life will certainly be an unforgettable experience for me and I hope all who see the film as well.
