Director Statement

With this film, my desire is to explore the narrative through time, space, and perception with topics of identity, grief and love. I was inspired by the idea of synchronicity and the notion of elasticity of time became a key component to the story. My premise is: If you could go back in time to save the person you love, could you find your way back? The treatment is based on a narrative structure of “mise en abyme”, or story within a story. Through my films, I want to share stories that resonate universally and explore the challenges of life and the human condition.
