“Return to Zero” World Premiere — Only 3 Days to Go!
The momentum is building for the World Premiere of RETURN TO ZERO on LIFETIME this Saturday, May 17th at 8pm Eastern / 7pm Central!
The press has been amazing! We’ve been featured on Ellen, Entertainment Tonight, the CBS Morning News, and you can tune in to see Minnie discuss RETURN TO ZERO on “The Talk” tomorrow!
If you haven’t seen the RTZ trailer yet, you can find it on our website at www.returntozerothemovie.com.
We’ve redesigned our site to make it easy for you to view our most recent videos, pre-order the DVD and find information, helpful links and a discussion guide for the film!
Even with all of the amazing publicity, we still need your help over the next 72 hours to get the word out about this important and silence-shattering film! This is an amazing moment for this community and we need your help with the final push!
Here are 5 ways to help promote the RETURN TO ZERO worldwide premiere this weekend!

Her focus is on women who have been through the loss of a baby and how one can journey through grief to healing.
