Director Statement

The process of making the film embedded the significance of its mission. Some of our cast and crew - myself included - even joined the organ donation registry and have since been giving blood as a result. I was so inspired I deliberately put red in every scene of the movie.

It's a tale of redemption that reminds us no matter the wrongs of yesterday, today, is never too late to do the right thing. The film is being produced by Hollywood super-producer Lloyd Levin (Boogie Nights, Th Watchmen, Hellboy, Die Hard).
