Director: Alec Carlos
Runtime: 8 Minutes
Description: At the start of a very normal day, Atlas is heckled by his brother, Jonny, into showing up at a family event later that night. Atlas is a bit snarkier and unenthusiastically agrees, as he hangs up on his brother, he gets another call. This time it is from his doctor who then tells Atlas that he has a form of pancreatic cancer. Atlas must go through all of the stages of grief and accept his situation in less than 12 hours. With his view of the world constantly shifting throughout the film, his childhood and fond memories (represented by an old toy) seems to be his only anchor in this scenario. He must overcome his grief enough to tell his family the news later that night.
