One Week in April 
One Week in April is a short film that tells the true story of four children under the age of four who got their hands on firearms and accidentally shot and killed themselves...all in the course of one week this past April. This VO uses the REAL words of one of the children's mothers. They chart the emotions of the mother: from the agony of grief and guilt to, ultimately, the notion of moving forward with dignity.

Script Details

I just can't get it outta my head. There's not enough scrubbing to get the blood off my body. Not enough brushing to get it out my mouth. Not enough medication to get the image out my head. Not enough words to make me feel better. Every time I close my eyes I see it...I wanna be with you baby, I don’t know what else to do…I'll give anything to be with you. Anything.

No matter what I do it'll never go away..I've been begging god to bring him back. He didn’t deserve it...My everything…Lord have mercy give me strength...They tell me if I walk with you no weapons formed Against me shall prosper...Lord I don’t call on you like I should but I’m screaming on your name right now on my hands and knees…

I don’t wanna let go.

Eyes hurtin'. Day two of no sleep. This shit is actually real man. I can’t take life. I am a useless sad waste of oxygen...I couldn't even be a protector. What right do I have to open my eyes to smile and he can’t. I don’t even see the point of my 20 years he deserves them way more than me…

I was almost broken but it was only a crack and with the bond of my god I will be fixed. Could you go on in your conscience knowing that your words caused a mother of two with one left and one on the way to cause harm to herself. Leaving behind a motherless beautiful baby girl. Could You? Could you lay down at night in peace? I will not be torn down like that. I got a daughter to raise and son to make proud. I will show no more weakness.
