Director Statement

Dani explores the difficulties of the often overlooked bisexual relationship. Gay people may struggle to trust their bisexual partner's commitment. They mistake their partners' sexuality for experimentation or holding them to lower standards compared to their straight counterparts. The purpose of Dani's character seeks to uncover the humanity of her bisexuality and hopefully put these misconceptions to rest.
