ABOUT 42 SECONDS
Screenwriter Judith Eisenberg's drama takes the audience through a traumatic event -- a mass shooting -- and the personal struggles of three survivors in the aftermath. Through mutual support, the survivors learn to confront their fears and take a first step toward healing.
We're making 42 Seconds to give hope to the victims of trauma. With support, self-compassion and hard work, trauma can be healed.

"How do we begin to comprehend the trauma of violence? 42 Seconds delivers stark and riveting portrayals of three survivors of a mass shooting who return to the scene of the crime. They relive the horror of the incident in excruciating detail. There is catharsis here, but, more importantly, there is, in the sharing of the experience, a bonding of souls that is, at its core, an affirmation of life."
-- Broadway World review of the original stage play by Kirt Shineman, which inspired this film.
