Brave, refreshingly unsentimental. . . . A journey that directors Helen Cohen and Mark Lipman chart in an unflinching yet sensitive way.

About the Film


A routine commute across the Golden Gate Bridge turned tragic for Dr. Grace Dammann when another driver crashed head on into her car. Though she miraculously survived, she spent more than a year in rehabilitation hospitals.

States of Grace follows her return home to the Buddhist community where she lives with her partner Nancy “Fu” Schroeder and their daughter Sabrina. Family dynamics are turned upside down as each of them must negotiate new roles and responsibilities. With humor and candor, the film intimately captures their story as Grace struggles to discover new purpose in her radically altered life.
