Portland's Oncology Youth Connection (OYC) partners with the award winning film Falling Overnight to explore the dynamics of falling in love amidst an uncertain future. 70,000 young people in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer each year. They are just like everyone else. However, some live more life each day than the rest of us, since tomorrow is never guaranteed.
Falling Overnight tells the story of twenty-two year old Elliot Carson (Parker Croft) on the day before he has risky surgery to remove a brain tumor. Facing what could be his last night, Elliot’s path intersects with Chloe Webb (Emilia Zoryan), a young photographer who invites him to her art show. Elliot welcomes the distraction and as the night descends, Chloe takes him on an intimate and exhilarating journey through the city. But as morning approaches and Chloe learns of Elliot’s condition, the magic of the evening unravels, and they must together face the uncertainty of Elliot’s future.
