Director Statement

Geoffrey's Heart is a little 3 minute film that serves as a little teaser for the feature film I am hoping to develop. The film will be about the love a mother has for her child and asks a question: how far can a mother go to keep her child safe? This short introduces us to the characters - the mother and her son. It gives a taste of what's to come in a gory, gruesome, but ultimately moving Geoffrey's Heart.
