Director Statement

I wanted to tell a story where a mother and daughter go through contradictory arcs due to them finding themselves at different points of their lives. The daughter has to learn to not neglect her family even though everything in her personal life feels far more important, and the mother has to learn to move beyond those she's called her family in the past and to accept that those people don't have to be all that her life is defined by. It's something that I have been struggling to figure out myself. The balance between love and independence.
