After losing their beloved daughter to a rare heart condition, two Iowa parents transformed their grief into a force for good by establishing the Erika Kate Foundation, a national assistance program for families with children who have been diagnosed with life threatening heart conditions. Heartland is a tribute to their philanthropy and a memorial for their daughter's tragically short life.

Originally from Taiwan, New York-based producer/director Hai-Tao Wu created Heartland as a graduate student final project. Here is the trailer: Heartland Trailer
