In the Jam Jar is an invitation to the intimacy of 81-year-old Joan's final days, whose musings silently echo with Dan's, her 50-year-old son. This fiction short-movie is a dive into death and grief, a tribute to maternal love comprised of nail clippings, aquarelle, strawberry jam and a ghost radar.
