RETURN TO ZERO is a drama, based on a true story, about a successful couple, Maggie and Aaron Royal, who are preparing for the arrival of their first child, a son. Just weeks before their due date they are devastated to discover that their baby has died in the womb and will be stillborn.
Maggie and Aaron attempt to go on with their lives as before but cannot escape their postpartum grief. They come to realize that their lives and relationship have been forever altered by this loss. They try to cope in a myriad of ways — through denial, escape, and alcohol — but when Maggie discovers that Aaron is having an affair with a co-worker, she decides to end the marriage.
Just when Maggie believes she has started a new life, she discovers that she is pregnant again by Aaron. With the help of her empathetic doctor who had experienced a similar loss years ago, Maggie finally grieves for the loss of her son. Through a turbulent and terrifying pregnancy, Maggie and Aaron reunite to see their child, a daughter, safely into the world.
I am so anxious to see this movie. The reviews have been great! Not to mention it is helping to dismiss the stigma surrounding stillbirth. This movie is so important in this movement.
