The Simple Path
follows the decision-making of Nevaeh, an elder care nurse who
struggles emotionally when one of her long-term patients loses
the ability to support the costs of her care.
Though the 16-minute film’s subject matter is distressing given
the realistic challenges it addresses, the story finds balance
in the random acts of kindness often provided to those in need.

been part of five other film festivals across the country,
Flathead Lake International Cinemafest in Montana (Jan. 24-26);
