NO WAKE by William Donnelly
By William Donnelly
Directed by Kimberly Senior
Starring: Tricia Small, Stef Tovar, Raymond Fox, and Andrew Carter
Nolan and Rebecca have moved on since their divorce--she to a new husband and he to a series of failed relationships. When an unexpected tragedy brings them back together, they're forced to navigate a web of grief and guilt that leads to tears, laughter and ultimately, hope.
At once deeply touching and filled with humor, NO WAKE takes an honest look at the grieving process and the unexpected consequences it can bring.
