Surviving can take a lifetime
Synopsis:
Hannah survived the accident. Her loved-one was not so lucky. Now she must rise from the wreckage and find the strength to rebuild her life. Alone.
Hannah (2009)

Discharged from hospital and alone in her apartment. Following the accident which killed her partner, Hannah must make the phone-calls nobody wants to make.

Life is never so difficult than in death.

Filmed for the lead actor as a unique performance piece, this emotional tour-de-force also displays a visual style entirely new to the Spiderhouse catalogue. Filmed in a swift and simple fashion, this minor piece is nevertheless an interesting and affecting feature.
