Director Statement

I simply wanted to tell a story depicting how in their pure nature, children are able to connect across all barriers and limitations of society, wealth, culture and ...perhaps even death. It was a great honour to work with my amazing crew dubbed 'Team Love Child', who all went that extra mile to create this touching story.
