Not only does Gaskill lend his acting skills to the short, opposite actress Clea Rivera, but he also wrote and co-directed it with Garrett Robinson.

The story takes place at a wedding reception, where Tommy (Gaskill) and Annabelle (Rivera) sneak away for a few moments alone. The couple recounts their past, and how it impacts their relationship in the present. Their walk down memory lane isn't all rainbows and butterflies. The duo's talk gives Tommy the courage to give the speech of a lifetime.

The film was funded by a grassroots Kickstarter campaign. It can be viewed on We Make Movies, a film collective and workshop for filmmakers.
