“My favorite part of making this film was getting to meet all the amazing people that are involved with D.C.’s PHWFF. After only spending a few days with the group, it’s clear that the participants have a great time together and the volunteers are extremely dedicated to making the program a success. They were all so welcoming and open to being filmed on their fishing trip out to the Shenandoah Valley. Everyone in D.C. should know about this group!”Grace Eggleston, Filmmaker
