A Thousand Times A Day is a story of loss and forgiveness. Natasha loses her 4-year-old son to drowning and blames her alcoholic brother, Jeremy, who was taking care of him on the night of the tragedy. Both of their lives are irrevocably ruined by the boy’s death. After hitting rock bottom, they both learn that, as hard as it might be, their only chance of survival lies in forgiveness and in choosing to let go.

Lady Alchemist Films worked with Colin’s Hope to help ensure that the drowning depicted in the film was portrayed as safely and realistically as possible. Most films and tv portray drowning victims yelling for help and waving their arms. In reality, drowning is most often fast and silent.  This was an opportunity to change the narrative in the film industry as it relates to drowning and an opportunity to communicate the importance of water safety and drowning prevention.

“It has been a true honor to work with and witness Chantelle and Lady Alchemist Films as they bring this film to the screen.  In my years of work in water safety and drowning prevention, I continually combat perceptions seen in the media that drowning looks like a person waving their arms and yelling for help, while in reality, drowning is fast and silent. This film will bring incredible awareness to the preventable epidemic of drowning and will direct viewers to Colin’s Hope for life-saving resources and water safety education. — Alissa Magrum, Executive Director, Colin’s Hope
