This Is How We Got Here is about the enduring resilience of the human spirit in times of sorrow, and the capacity we all have for forgiveness. Lucille and Paul have lost their son Craig to suicide. Through a non-linear narrative, the broken pieces of a story come together in a heartbreaking journey to find a way forward after the death of a child. (
