Director Statement

The concept for my film stems from my personal experience with the complexities and inconsistencies of laws in the real world. Living in a society where laws are not only numerous, but also subject to the personal biases of lawmakers, has led me to get deeply interested in the topic of law. Furthermore, even within the dwelling in which I reside, there are specific rules and regulations that I am obliged to comply with. As such, the subject of law has always been of great significance to me. It is for this reason that I have chosen to create a film that addresses the absurdity of certain laws.
