Director Statement

With Corona, my city has also seen an increase in young female homeless people. Furthermore, a war started. I wanted to make a girl-meets-boy film about difficult times. In times like these, I wanted to make an extraordinarily bright and colorful film. I also wanted to appeal to women who are homeless, but who are living strong and vibrant lives.
