Director Statement

From the outset, my aim was to craft a revenge narrative, one that flips the hunter into the hunted, while delving into the circumstances that led them to this critical juncture. My primary goal was to unveil the profound evolution of our formidable protagonist, who, long before the story unfolds, has weathered countless trials. By journey's end, she not only confronts her adversary but also grapples with her own complex emotional landscape, adding depth and nuance to the story.
