CHAT- A Covid 19 Story follows Angel, a young girl who recently lost her father to Covid-19. She reconnects with him through a smart device app that somehow speaks to her, using her father’s voice. This story is a tribute to everyone that has lost a loved one to the Corona-virus pandemic, and to essential workers that bravely provide needed services for us all. Our cast and crew were sheltered in place during production.
