*EDIT* Well, this being a Daily Feature sure is a pleasant surprise! Thank you to all who voted on this. I've also included a brand new loader.

This movie is about people's parents/grandparents who (undeservingly) get placed into nursing homes and become forgotten, only to die of loneliness.
Effluo is Latin. It means "to vanish", or "to be forgotten". Really, this is the result of my own grandmother's death a few months ago. We cared dearly for her, and took care of her 'till the very end, but it got me thinking... what about the other people? Who comes to see them before they die?



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

A Very Thoughtful Piece

It's unfortunate to have the elderly's minds deteriorate and bodies wither while being forgotten by their relatives. They live their later days as an afterthought, only mourned when
they leave us entirely.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Man Wow

Cheers to you sir...very wonderful, very touching...and it is quite terrible. Yet the average creature within our populace sadly cares not for takes a truly good human being to forget his problems when others are presented with some...and sadly enough, there arent too many trully good humans around. Wonderful job thou.

That was a sad flash. Even the music was sad too. Old people in nursery homes, it's a tragic thing, but what can you do about it? Most people are too selfish or busy to worry about the old people in nursing homes. That's really sweet of you and your family to take care of your grandmother before she died, and you made a good point, what about the other old people who's children or grandchildren don't even bother.
