Return To Zero Movie

GAPPS is excited to partner with a Lifetime movie called Return To Zero. Starring Minnie Driver and Paul Adelstein, the movie is based on the true story of a successful couple who are preparing for the arrival of their first child. Just weeks before their due date they are devastated to discover that their baby son has died in the womb and will be stillborn.

The Movie's Mission

The impact that one stillbirth has on the mother, the father, their family, and friends is devastating -- a shock-wave of pain, guilt and then, too often, silence. The majority of those affected, especially the mothers, suffer in this silence often believing that their grief and trauma is theirs to bear alone.

While planning to entertain and enlighten all audiences with a dramatic tale of the strength and resilience of the human spirit, RETURN TO ZERO intends to break through the silence and become a beacon of cinematic light to the millions in search of answers, understanding and healing.


GAPPS is joining the fiilmmakers in raising awareness about stillbirth and breaking the stigma and the silence that so often encompasses this tragedy. For moviegoers who see the film and are inspired to get involved, GAPPS will be providing ways to connect with guilds, with families who have been affected, and with advocacy, awareness and fundraising campaigns.

Follow along with the movie and get the latest updates on Facebook.
