FEATURE FILM | IN DEVELOPMENT
A married couple takes their three kids on a summer camping trip to the Wenatchee River in the Pacific Northwest to help break the news they're getting a divorce.
Ryan and Julia Winters recently separated over the stress and anxiety of their youngest daughters cancer diagnosis and treatment. Although their daughter is in remission, the treatment took a devastating toll on the family. While Julia had total faith their daughter would be healed, Ryan lost his faith, became bitter and bottled up all his emotions, which caused them to drift apart. Over the course of the weekend and through several ah ha moments, Ryan's faith is restored and their marriage saved.
FLOAT is based on several family's real life experience with childhood cancer, including Hungry Fish Founder's Jay & Kara Jones' daughter, Hunter Rose.
"While over 80% of children with CANCER will be cured of their disease, many people are unaware of the physical and psychological toll a cancer diagnosis and treatment takes on the ENTIRE FAMILY unit. FLOAT offers a unique perspective on these challenges, inspired by the creative tea's real-life battles with childhood cancer."
