Director Statement

The idea came about from a real life personal dilemma that felt morally ambiguous but forcefully compelling. It was romantic in nature too and it was a way to exorcise the demons I had of wanting something I felt I could never have. I also believe this film extends past the concept of romance and pertains to anything that we feel is an obstacle in life that we cannot pass through. Our wants cannot always be our needs no matter how much we want them to be.

Principle cast includes Dominic Applewhite who starred in The Inbetweeners (2008-10), Overlord (2018), Sex Education (2019), and Caroline Ward who was a main cast member from the horror feature Host (2021).
