Final Conversations
by FronteraFest

Nov. 05 (2016)

Final Conversations explores a nother’s wish to have one real conversation with her son before he’s accidentally killed. -- One morning before he leaves for school, she suddenly knows that he has one hour to live. With a kitchen-sink approach, Mother attempts to get it “right” in conversation after conversation, using comic and often absurd methods to reach Son, none of which alters destiny.

Directed by Crystal Franz

MOTHER - mid-thirties to forties, tired (in many ways)
SON - high school senior, chronically distracted
