It's one of the hundreds of projects vying for $100,000 in prize money in the Viewster Online Film Fest — and "international online event that attracts, displays, and rewards series, short films, features, web series, and teasers that are not always as famous as they should be."

Watch the short film now!

In the film, the actress takes a break from playing April on Grey's to portray Charlotte, a woman who manages to rewind the clock on her strained relationship with her desperate father.

As the actress told us in November, she used her own experiences to tap into Charlotte's mindset: "I thought about my actual dad while we were shooting that, which kind of helped tap into that emotion of it — if that had been my dad crippled by sorrow and me trying to pull him back — and pulling him back with love but also pulling him back by new life … There was a lot that was in there that made me fall in love with my dad all over again. I ended up calling him after we finished shooting to tell him how much I loved him."
