It means 'I love you!'

Based on true story,

Facing the most difficult time of their life:-
Their baby son has died in the womb...
L-O-V-E is a strong and only bonding,
That makes their marriage and relationship goes on....

Happily preparing for the arrival of their first child..

Just weeks before their due date,
They are devastated to discover that,
Their baby son has died in the womb,
And will be stillborn...

Don't miss the chance to catch:
Return To Zero...
On Astro Lifetime (CH709)
And learns the new maths of how...
Three minus one,
Could be equal to ZERO!~

The couple attempt to go on with their lives,
But cannot escape their postpartum grief,
And their relationship has 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...

With the help of an empathetic doctor
Who once experienced a similar loss,
Maggie finally learns to grieve for her son,
And must reunite with Aaron,
To prepare for their second pregnancy. 

Director and Writer of Return to Zero,
Sean Hanish explained that,
Return to Zero means returning to a place,
Where you need to rediscover,
A new philosophy for life. 

He and his wife,
Lost their son,
Norbert Krekorian Hanish,
In July 2005,
After 37 weeks...

The true meaning of marriage is,
No matter how hard and tough life is,
Both husband and wife,
Are still facing every ups and downs TOGETHER,
And building an entire new life philosophy from scratch...

Pregnancy is never an easy experience,
Delivery is always a painful experience,
But babies are always beautiful.....
The moment babies are born,
You'll know....
Miracle happens......


About The Film
While this film is intended,for a wide-release to audiences regardless of their life experience, Return to Zero fills a particular niche for a market that has gone unserved — those who have or know someone who has experienced the devastating loss of stillbirth, miscarriage, or neonatal death.
The statistics on stillbirth, which is the loss of a child after 20th week of pregnancy, are remarkable. In the U.S. alone there are approximately 26,000 stillbirths a year. That is equivalent to the amount of people who die in traffic accidents across this country every year. Yet, this topic has never been the central theme of a feature film.
The impact that one stillbirth has on the mother, the father, their family, and friends is devastating — a shock-wave of pain, guilt and then, too often, silence. The majority of those affected, especially the mothers, suffer in this silence often believing that their grief and trauma is theirs to bear alone.
While planning to entertain and enlighten all audiences with a dramatic tale of the strength and resilience of the human spirit, Return to Zero intends to break through the silence and become a beacon of cinematic light to the millions in search of answers, understanding and healing.

Return to Zero has been selected as one of the official selection of RIFF Awards 2014, and CINEQUEST Film Festival.
