Director Statement

Although it was unintentional, the plot of this story ended up mirroring a lot of my journey as a first-time director during production while struggling to uphold my own standards and the expectations of those around me. I found that confronting what I was going through ultimately showed me why I felt the need to create the story in the first place. I’m hoping the resolution I found is something that will help others find some solace as well.
