A single moment can live forever
We're making 42 Seconds to give hope to the victims of trauma. With support, self-compassion, and firm, yet gentle, work, trauma can be healed.
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 giant step toward healing.
