Director Statement

In this short, I narrate the story of Karla's favorite book coffee shop turning into an impersonal coffee, reflecting the grow of her town into a city.
I want show how the people and things we used to do in the past leave a mark in our lives and make us who we are, and that the nostalgia that we feel about our past self can be a good incentive to return to things we felt passionate about in the past. Also that animals can be part of ourselves and that they can bring the best of us.
