The story, about a pregnant woman who decides to carry her baby to term even though it died in a car accident, was intriguing enough to solidify my interest, so we tracked down writer/director Paul Solet and producer Adam Green, best known as the director of Hatchet and Spiral, to learn more about the movie.
