Filmmaker Ryan McKenna attempts to shoot a documentary about his ailing friend but life in quarantine is making it difficult.

“My dear friend Dan Gerson has a degenerative eye disorder and is going blind. Our plan is for me to make a doc portrait of him trying to complete what is likely his final film. We’ve been having a really hard time getting started. Dan was recently in the hospital for several months with a life-threatening illness, and now COVID is keeping us from really getting started. This is a snapshot of my life in quarantine, as well as my attempts to get this new project off the ground. Like Gerson’s recovery, everything feels like it’s moving in baby steps.” – Ryan McKenna
