About the Movie

Dealing with regret can be a very tall order.

Kelsey and Julian meet Marcella, an odd antique store owner, who overhears Kelsey’s regrets about her mom. Marcella offers her a mysterious building permit contained in a curious wooden box. The permit allows them to build anywhere they want, up to an astonishing 68 floors high. They start building the house as described in the permit, much to Julian’s dismay. But what may be driving the insane construction may be something Kelsey has yet to realize about her mom’s death.

What started off as a funny dream for me quickly blossomed into a short story about something we all deal with, regret. ‘Miss You Mom’ is a short journey into this reality we all face, and how extreme love can be deeply hidden in the veil of grief.
