Director Statement

After starting this project in early 2020, we up and coming actors and filmmakers persisted in completing this project and learned a great deal about collaborating across continents and disciplines. It has an original score composed by a good friend of mine, and the film carries a great deal of care and meaning for veterans struggling with mental health and their loved ones.
