Can time mend all wounds?
In 3 DAYS GONE eleven year old Mary embarks on a road trip with her father to an unknown destination. But a series of events occur that reveal his instability and it becomes clear to Mary that something sinister lurks inside him. When things reach a breaking point she has to choose to abandon him or stay by his side.
When the opportunity for London based director John Gutierrez arrived to create a concept short film for his feature THREE YEARS GONE, he hired long time friend and LA creative producer Michael Chance. Given the duo’s history of editing together in the yearly 2000’s, there was already a great synergy established within the production. Chance brought on producing partner Chris Ely, who flexed the might of Rekon Productions. Together Gutierrez, Chance, and Ely managed to deliver an emotional and nuanced film within a modest budget and tight schedule.
Ultimately, 3 DAYS GONE looks at how families are impacted by war and specifically how secondary traumatization affects the children of veterans. The purpose of the short film is to serve as a proof of concept for the feature film version, THREE YEARS GONE. After an initial festival release, 3 DAYS GONE will be shared online in 2016.
