At Good Grief groups children meet to understand the passing of a parent or a sibling through play, giving in to rage in ‘the volcano room’, and saying goodbye to a dying teddy bear patient in ‘the hospital room’. Over the course of a year, we follow the weekly meetings and get close to Kimmy, Nicky, Peter, Nora, Nolan and Mikayla and their close companion: grief. It is sometimes heartbreaking.
