Director Statement

The Jones family are some of my strongest friends. They've always welcomed me and many others with open arms, when I began to realise their struggles I felt compelled to tell their story. I hope you enjoy the film and possibly learn a little bit about the increasing difficulties these hard working men are facing. Thank you for watching.
