Director Statement

I hope the audience would feel a range of emotions whether it be humour, sadness or reflection on the reality of the message. I give you a journey to enjoy but a story which you must ask yourself how this happens everyday.

This short Dark Comedy is meant to reflect on issues that might easily get swept under the rug without a second's notice regarding our Urban Animals.

Hopes it brings both humour and reflection into your day.
