On a snowy day, in January 1983, a young man enters his family's Nearly Forgotten diner and announces he is about to set off to report to Marine Corps "boot camp." He receives two very different reactions from his father, an emotionally scarred Marine Corps Vietnam Veteran, and from his grandfather a proud Marine Corps Veteran of WWII. When a young, special-needs woman enters the diner, her childlike views serve as a catalyst for each man to view life in a simpler, brighter light, that will help carry each of them through one last nearly insurmountable tragedy in their lives.

Behind the Scenes
Nearly Forgotten was inspired by actual events experienced by the screenwriter and members of her family. On October 23, 1983 she began a journey across country with her husband a newly commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps. Her husband was due to report to The Basic School at Quantico, Virginia in just a few days and thus began one of the most influential events of their lives.

It was that same day they began their journey, the Marine Corps Barracks in Beirut Lebanon was bombed, killing 220 Marines, 18 sailors and three soldiers.

Nearly Forgotten is directed by Rick Redford. Rick was raised backstage at the University of Utah Theater Department where his father was a professor, actor and director. Rick's mother was a professional opera singer and actress. Rick studied musical theater in college and has over 30 years experience in the industry. Nearly Forgotten is Rick's directorial debut.

Rindi Redford stars in the movie and was recognized for her poignant and talented performance by the Filmed in Utah Awards where she received an official best actress nomination in a Short Film/Series.
