Rocky is Dead (2021)

8min   |   English   |  Dir. Drew Crosby


After a young boy passes away, his older brother visits the lake they used to frequent together and begins to hear his voice speaking to him from beyond the grave... In the form of a rock. What follows is a sad yet silly family dispute traveling backwards through the stages of grief.
