FOR THEM, FOR YOU
When a boy loses his toy soldier, he visits a therapist's office for answers where he encounters many versions of himself while attempting to seek help. He discovers several answers and truths about loss and death through the stages of grief as he moves through this dream to find the true meaning of the loss of his soldier.
