Description

Hope Litoff's sister, Ruth, was dynamic and artistic. But after years of mental health struggles, Ruth died by suicide in 2008. Since then, her belongings, including her exceptional photography, have lived in a storage facility. In this beautifully crafted, intimate film, Hope unpacks the storage space and explores her sister's life and relationships while opening a painful — and potentially dangerous — path for herself.

 

Submitted for 2017 Feature Documentary Academy Award.
