Willows is an anthology of three stories that examine the feelings of loss, and the value of time.

Story one: Lex reminisces with his cactus friend Stanley until a rapping sound abruptly stops their conversation. As the rapping sound gets louder and the approaching danger imminent, Lex apologizes for not being able to keep them safe.

Story two: Ellen and Jonathan, a couple in their 70’s, walk into an art gallery to discover photos of a young Ellen. A secret of Ellen’s past is uncovered and leaves a heartbroken Jonathan behind.

Story three: Michael, a soldier, returns home after being rescued from Iraq where his entire group was beheaded. Now by himself, he breaks down with guilt and looks for strength to overcome the pain.
