Stay Then Go

Stay Then Go takes a poignant, challenging look at the bonds of parenthood from an unexpected perspective: that of a devoted mom who must figure out the rules for letting go of the son she built her whole life around.

Part intimately detailed family drama, part emotional ghost story, the film is written and directed by Shelli Ainsworth who spins a lyrical work of fiction that hits personally close to home for her.

This is the story of Marion Baird, a mother who -- like so many confronted with a child who is different -- finds herself negotiating increasingly unpredictable territory.

Screening in BEST of FEST on 4/23.
