Yardline Films

Narrative short film (13:23 run time):


There's no way to ever prepare for the unspeakable, but when tragedy strikes our lives, do we ever truly move on? We're often told we have to, but the pain can linger, haunting us, refusing to let go. Perhaps there is a reason, a purpose for this pain. A teacher comes face-to-face with the surreal, the unexpected, as he struggles to move forward with the guilt in the wake of a deadly school shooting.  

Dandelions is expected to be featured at domestic and international film festivals throughout 2019.

Sometimes a dream almost whispers...
it never shouts.
Very hard to hear.
So you have to, every day of your lives,
be ready to hear what whispers in your ear.
— Steven Spielberg
