How long does it take to recover from a tragedy?

Most of us can vividly recall the greatest tragedies and sorrows our lives, but the days, weeks, months and even years following them are frequently a blur in our memory. When did we recover? With audio excerpted from interviews with family and close friends of the British director Jessica Bishopp, Speed explores several perspectives on tragedies large and small – from the death of a loved one to losing a close friend to a new school – and reflections on the role that time plays in the cycle of trauma and recovery.
