Never Steady, Never Still - Trailer

My mum said to me then that death is not cruel, death is a gift from God, just as life is. I told mum I wasn’t so sure about God... And then there was Ed - the still babe held tight to his chest - he looked thin and pale as the underside of a leaf. I knew then must have been my heart that could not fill her heart properly, because I could see her tiny fist among the folds of the cloth, and I knew she was anything but weak.
