Director Statement

Given the nature of the film exercise, namely using 400 ft of film and having 12 hour day to shoot a film, I decided to have a new take on the well known concept in which the film explores mid marriage crisis leading a wife to have an affair with a younger man as well as replacing husband's affection for his wife with the passion for football. It all leads into comical but potentially humiliating situation for the wife, but the situation which will be solved with a comic twist at the end.
