This short film is an expose on grief: living with it and overcoming it. The documentary focuses on a series of interviews with six individuals who have experienced a form of grief. Each candidate was asked to write a letter to the person they had lost. A public event was organized to bring together people who had experienced grief, allowing them to write their own letters and these were then tied to balloons. And on the only sunny day in December 2008 a group, much larger than the original six, joined together to watch the sixty red balloons vanish from sight.
