When Words Fail is the story of a young artist trying desperately to persevere after a miscarriage. Leigh is struggling with her loss in solitude and must find some way to transform her heartache into solace. In attempts to process her grief, she gives birth to an ambitious painting detailing her journey. Through a series of non-linear memories, she relives the discovery of her pregnancy, the joys of expecting, and the devastation of losing a child. While accepting the fact that she will never be the same, Leigh explores the violence and beauty of healing and the cathartic power of art.

Leigh- F. A twenty-something student and artist.
