Solo is a documentary about grief and campervans. Inspired by the story of my parents, the film follows a woman in her sixties. When she loses her husband, she is left behind with their camper. Learning to drive and manage the vehicle is like learning to navigate life itself now that her husband is not around anymore to support her.
Expected to premier in the fall of 2016, Solo offers an emotional story which brings the process of mourning to life through the metaphor of the ups and downs of a road trip.
