BASED ON A TRUE STORY!
A teenager struggles with mental illness as his mother fights to save him without losing the rest of the family.

No Letting Go is a dramatic, independent feature film adapted from the award-winning short film, ILLNESS, and based on the real-life story of producer and co-writer Randi Silverman and her family. The film is a heartfelt look at one family’s journey to understand and to cope with the erratic behavior and emotional instability of their middle son. Directed by Jonathan Bucari.
The producers of No Letting Go have partnered with The Youth Mental Health Project, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, which seeks to promote awareness and understanding of the mental health of children, adolescents, and young adults.
