After being forced to return early from summer camp, Dana and Sam find themselves in the midst of their late grandfather's Buddhist funeral ceremony. Death and loss are treated with respect and sadness as the girls ponder the purpose of life and what their grandfather meant to them. Floating Light was awarded the BC Student Shortwork Award at Whistler Film Festival.
