I wrote this film after the early passing of my friend and boyfriend of my sister, Russell Nowotenski. Russell tragically died of an epileptic seizure at the age of 24. In my drug induced attempt to cope with his death, I came up with the idea for this story. I finished writing Born Again a few years later while studying film in college. Born Again is a story about three stoners who try to find peace after the death of a friend while simultaneously searching for his reincarnated soul.
