How do you explain tragedy to a 3-year-old?
Close to five years ago, Jayson Greene and his wife, Stacy, lost their 2-year-old daughter, Greta, to a horrible accident. Fifteen months later, their son, Harrison, was born. Now that Harrison is growing up, he wants to know about his older sister.

Six years after the collaboration on the Modern Love : Fight or Flight video, the New York Times asked REANIMATION to illustrate Jayson Greene's moving story about losing a child and how to live with it.

The result is a poetic yet haunting movie, where mixed technics animation emphasizes the thoughts of a recovering parent.
