STILL HERE: A Short Film about Appreciating the Beauty of Life

“A true story about not realizing how beautiful life is until the moment you think it’s gone.”

Inspired by Erfaan Nazemadeh, who was diagnosed with cancer at 19.  A week later he was told that he was misdiagnosed.

The Story

Two strangers receive test results from the hospital —

A young, up-and-coming sports agent has been diagnosed with terminal cancer, while a grim old loner, anticipating his own death, is sentenced… to live. We follow these two men as they are forced to leave behind their old lives — and face the deep yearning in their hearts.

By chance, they each confide in the same woman—she is the mother of one of the men, and the salvation of the other. Then the hospital calls again, with some unexpected news.

Be Apart of Making the Film

Ethan Rains (Sin City, Open Graves, 24) makes his writing and directorial debut with Still Here.   Alongside his brother Dominic Rains (Saving Jessica Lynch, The Taqwacores, Flight 93) who stars and produces the film.  These two are not just telling an incredible story. They are showing all of the film makers out there, that if you have a story and want to share it, you can make it happen.
