For Those We’ve Loved is a journey into the innermost depths of our hearts, souls and emotions. It transcends the tragic events that are commemorated in John Adams’ On the Transmigration of Souls and Paul Hindemith’s When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d. It is a transformative journey filled with portraits of everyday life and people that reaffirms and celebrates the strength and durability of the American spirit.
