Distracted driving is currently responsible for 9 deaths and over 1000 injuries EACH DAY in the U.S. – a staggering statistic that emphasizes the truly devastating consequences of this growing issue.
“Unfinished Stories” is an animated film series created by Travelers Insurance that imagines the unrealized futures of real victims whose lives were tragically cut short by distracted driving. Working closely with the victims’ families to imagine what might have been for their loved ones,  “Unfinished Stories” envisions those potential future chapters had the driver not been distracted, and the tragic accidents been avoided.
Two powerful short films have launched in the “Unfinished Stories” series that detail the lives of 19-year-old Shreya Dixit and 62-year-old Howard Stein, both killed in separate yet equally-preventable distracted driving incidents. Howard Stein was a self-taught master craftsman, who delighted in making furniture and goods for friends and loved ones. He struck by a distracted driver while tending to his truck on the side of the road. In “The Tree House,” a beautifully animated short film created in partnership with LOBO and directed by Guilherme Marcondes, reveals a special relationship between Howard and his granddaughter, Evie, whom he never had a chance to meet before his untimely death. The film imagines a growing bond between the two of them as they craft a backyard tree house from start to finish, and become best friends along the way.
Each of these stories are aimed to underscore the incalculable loss of potential that comes with the loss of these lives, and the unfinished lives of all those killed by distracted driving.
