Marcus A. Stricklin,* writer/director of the short film "The Last Dance," awkwardly talks about the film. 

The Last Dance is the story of Don and Rita who are fresh off of celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary. After everyone has departed, they decide to share one last dance together. Through the course of this dance, they begin to reflect on their relationship from the time they first met at the age of 5, through the present day. As the story progresses, we see how much love they've shared with each other over the course of their lives and that they would do anything for love.
