Up next: Rabbit Hole (30th March - 2nd April)
Becca and Howie Corbett have a picture perfect family life in the suburbs of New
York until a random, tragic accident takes the life of their four-year old son. Soon
after, Becca’s younger, irresponsible sister, Izzy, announces that she is pregnant:
there will now be a new child in the family. As Becca and Howie grow apart, Becca’s
mother, Nat, badgers Becca about her grieving process, and Jason, the young driver
who killed their son, continually shows up to ask forgiveness, the group is on a
bumpy road to healing with no road map in sight. Rabbit Hole delves into the
complexity of a family navigating deep grief, and learning what it means to live a
fruitful life when things fall apart.
