Video: Losing someone is painful and world shattering and can almost feel impossible to endure. There's no real way to prepare yourself and there's no quick way to get over it but the fact is, everyone is going to have to deal with it at some point in their life.

But whether you've lost someone, or something, or some experience, or some moment, or even yourself, it will give a movie counterpart that shows how it's been dealt with in fiction so that it might help us out (even if it's just a little) in reality.
