On 1953, Gretchen the puppy got lost entering the cave, her owner Claudia searchs for her as a child but never finds her. Gretchen time-travels forward to 1986, when Claudia finally finds her in the same cave after 33 years. For Gretchen maybe just minutes/hours passed before Claudia found her

One of the main characters suffers from depression or anxiety caused by his father's suicide. He takes pills for this and is shown to often have nightmares and sees hallucinations of his father. Another character suffers from anxiety and anxiety attacks. He has a mantra to get through them, but it is clear he suffers from his anxiety.
