Director Statement

This always sounds like a pretentious artist cliche, but this film really came to me in a dream. In fact, it was a dream I had many times from 2012-2013. It was so unusual that it's one of the few dreams I bothered to write down the following morning. The result, nearly ten years later, is a personal short about regrets, grief, depression, and the extremes of poor coping mechanisms. And how it affects others. But with my usual dark sense of humor. I think my therapist will have a field day with this one.
