Director Statement

New York is the most diverse city in the world. Many people from all over the world live there and their unique cultures shape the city. There are so many stories about love, break ups, and betrayal in New York. The three women in my film represent that diverse culture and stories of the city.
Revenge is a natural reaction to betrayal, but I don't want to take it too seriously. I got this idea from an experience I had when I was a kid. It was very shameful (and painful) but it is one of my funniest memories. I wanted to share my funny experience originate in my own culture.
Sometimes we feel like we should take revenge on those who hurt us. However, I hope we can learn to let anger slide away.
