Director Statement

It has been a privilege to have made such an out there film this early in my life. It was a challenging and heartbreaking process at times but I appreciate how much it pushed me to connect to what being childfree means to me. I hope I can keep exploring this in interesting ways and it would be a delight to contribute to childfree centric stories getting more attention.
