This intricate story of loss and family came about as a way for the filmmakers to process their post-9/11 grief. The husband and wife filmmaking team of Pieter Gasperz and Sabrina Gennarino lived next to the World Trade Center and were deeply impacted by the tragedy. Writer Sabrina Gennarino loosely based the film on her own tight-knit Italian family in upstate New York (the film was shot at her family’s quarry in Rochester) and how they may have reacted to heart-breaking loss. Gennarino's screenplay is in some ways the familiar story of a family’s struggles with a failing business, intergenerational bickering, difficult personalities, and grief. It also reveals this family’s unique approach to managing their sadness - one that may or may not have been for the best.
