Director Statement

This is my first solo project as a filmmaker. I wrote, produced, and directed this short film in hopes to share a story that has become far too familiar for so many families, my own included. So my hope is to be another fixture in the industry that gives an honest and transparent representation of the stories that are perpetually underrepresented, and captivate the hearts within our communities. This being my first film, is my first step.
