100 Days / by R. Sheth

Featuring: Weiko Lin and Einat Tubi

After his Buddhist mother dies of cancer, a college-circuit comedian on the road has 100 days to marry in order for his mother's spirit to transition in peace. Reluctant to fulfill this superstitious condition, the man awkwardly reunites with his estranged and married high school sweetheart. The death that reconnects these two as adults turns out to be their source of salvation.

100 Days is based on a Taiwanese tradition that stipulates that when a parent passes away before his or her child is wed, the child has 100 days to get married in order to ensure that the parent's spirit transitions peacefully or risk a delay of three years. Inspired in part by the death of his own mother.
