"Maybe Someday is, indeed, a beautiful little film about loss and grief, love and letting go." The Independent Critic
Cinequest Film Festival
Outfest LA Film Festival
Maybe Someday follows Jay (Michelle Ehlen), a photographer in her 40s, battling a mixture of denial and depression as she attempts to move across the country in the midst of separation. Along the way, Jay takes a detour to stay with high school best friend (Shaela Cook) who Jay used to be secretly in love with before coming out as a lesbian, and befriends a charismatic but complicated gay man (Charlie Steers) who has long given up on love. Struggling to move forward with the next chapter of her life, memories of the past resurface as Jay grapples with the inevitable cycles of love, loss, and letting go.
