Alone Together: an original story + mental health forum

ALONE TOGETHER is an original story from the mind of poet / screenwriter / playwright Marshall “Gripp” Gillson. Trapped inside during a blizzard, a black couple has no choice but to confront the perilous implications of their mental health struggles.
