Filmmakers have released a powerful short film about the Covid-19 pandemic that they hope will fight fear with hope.

Written and directed by Jesse Edwards, the film from Evolve Studios focuses on a trio of human stories.

In the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic, 3 fearful families are united by a small act of hope.

The filmmakers said they made the film to fight what they called an epidemic of fear.

"It seems more people than ever right now are alone, scared, anxious, and consumed in fear.," they said.

"We need hope. We need storytelling that will remind people that even in the darkest hour, we can and will get through this, together. There is hope. There is love. And even if at a distance, we have each other."

It's so far had over 40,000 views. You can watch it below.

The film was written, produced and filmed within a short window during March 2020.

The shoot operated "within complete compliance of the State of Tennessee, US Federal Government mandates and CDC recommendations around COVID-19 best practices," according to the team behind it.

"Production followed volunteer, micro limited crew and cast footprint, social distancing, and strict clean set protocols. The filmmakers acknowledge the threat posed by the spread of COVID-19 is real, alarming and should be taken very seriously. Strict precautions were thoroughly evaluated and enforced to ensure a safe set."
