Director Statement

The idea of "5" goes beyond a pair of young couple contempleting their relationship. More importantly, the concept is to remind and relieve. Sometimes life can be messy, suffocting and far from perfect. We don't get to choose what cards we are being delt with, but we can choose how we play it. And always remember to breathe and let go of what we can't change.
