Director Statement

This Film is a reflection about the possible outcomes of a long-term toxic relationship and how it can affect to someone psychologically.

All my stories show situations that I am dealing with in the present time and my goal is to reflect on those situations and figure out a way to confront them while writing the script. It is almost therapeutical. In this case, the things that drove me to write this film were:
The pressure that I felt after forcing myself to accomplish what everyone and even myself expected me to achieve.
The sadness of realizing that some people in your family are really toxic and the grief that comes when deciding to keep them away from your life.
My own past experience of being a child living in a house where there was a toxic relationship.

All these personal experiences are in this Film and hopefully it will help to those who watch it to understand the pain and suffering of not taking responsibility of your own actions.
