In this tale of magical realism set on a mid-century Kansas farm, only 12-year old Derrick is aware that his siblings are disappearing one by one. Not only are they gone, there is no trace that they ever existed. With an eerie sense of foreboding, he comes to understand that his own fate is subject to his mother’s longing for her faded youth. Dwindling was named Best Short at several independent film festivals including Dragoncom and Newport Horror Fest.
