Keeping Hope by Kushal Vaghani is a silent short showing how powerful emotional connections within a family can be. Simone is crying on her father’s deathbed along with her mum. Holding her father’s palm, she recollects her childhood memories and the emotional connection with her family. Suddenly death approaches the father and Simone tries to convince death not to take the father. However, death is not perturbed by Simone’s insistence. Simone then holds the hands of her father and mother, as they(family) did during the childhood, and this emotional human connection humbles death.
