Director Statement

This project deeply reasonates with me simply because of how much I could relate to Keith's story: always looking to please everyone around me at the expense of not staying true to myself. We made this film with a lot of passion and hard word with the hopes that audiences will receive another reminder of the importance to stay true to who they really are.
