A Fine Short!
26 December 2013 | by SylSee all my reviews

Eric Escobar has written and directed this twelve minute short film on a single mother who volunteers one weekend a month for the United States National Guard. When she is called for active duty in Iraq, she worries about her kids. The short film is about making plans for her children. The actress does a very good job in her performance in conveying the realities. First, she learns about her deployment and tries to get out of it. Her mother doesn't seem to care about her grandchildren. There is an underlying notion about why in alluding to her phone call. The director and writer has done an admirable job in accomplishing so much in this short film.
