Duet explores the profundity of death through the eyes of a seven year old girl. This story is unique in that it encapsulates a vulnerable period in a child's life through magic realism and the synchronicity of music and image. Our team is passionate about sharing this potent story with the world!

Mission Statement

Our team is committed to crafting stories with complex, three dimensional roles for young women, and little Frida is the source of strength and light in this otherwise solemn fiction.

The Story

Duet illustrates the grieving process of father, Charlie, and daughter, Frida, shortly following the death of mother and unborn son. While Charlie struggles with living up to fatherhood without the support of his wife, Frida attempts to understand the implications of her mother's absence. Due to their poverty, Charlie is forced to sell his wife's piano, which Frida secretly uses to communicate with her mother's spirit.
