STILL LIFE is an exploration of shared grief – a compelling and darkly comic examination of the way we adjust to life and loss in a terrorist age.Lydia’s daughter hasn’t returned home since a series of subway bombings. As she waits for news, Lydia becomes inextricably linked with her annoying son-in-law, Donald, and an anonymous millennial photographer who won’t stop following her. Adding to Lydia's nightmare, after the bombings, the photos of Lydia become part of an exhibit that is embraced by the art world as a commentary on what society has lost to terrorism.
