Director Statement

We're promoting disability in horror. I absolutely wanted the protagonist to be a little girl with Down Syndrome, because there's just not enough diversity in horror movies. Then I found the 7-year-old Romy Heere from Amsterdam who's been a model for... well, ever since she was born. Romy has the face of an angel and is by far the sweetest and kindest actress we've ever worked with.
Her performance impressed everyone on the set and we had a great time shooting this short film.
