Director Statement

I wanted to bring the light on a very controversial topic by interviewing real people that are and have gone through the silent struggles of this situation. Making people informed on what the child support system really is and how it's utilized. This film is very relatable for many who aren't courageous enough or embarrassed to speak out on the topic.
