This subtle and poignant storytelling takes us on a patient journey of the main character Olivia through the acceptance of the death of a beloved one. The realistic tempo in which the acts unfold gives the audience a longing feeling that is typical of a slow healing process we all go through. The visceral dialogue is brave and the performances brilliant. This most precarious subject of loss is handled with beauty, full immersion and sensitivity.

We all have lost somebody we love, have wished we had said more words, have wished we’d spent more time or done things differently. The sober understanding of that loss and the pain it brings is depicted magnificently by the director, Abhishek Chandra in this moody and somber short.

Produced by Abhishek Chandra and Isabela Valotti under Meraki Studios, “Lady Bug” has not only touched the audiences in a profound way, but it has also earned quite a few accolades around the world.
