Director Statement

Little David and The Plunger is about big changes, mourning what's been lost, and moving on. This project is deeply personal, born out of my own experience of moving as a child intertwined with my love for magic, wonder, and curiosity. Dealing with change and heartbreak is something I believe we all struggle with, we must simply look for the star-shooting plunger in our own lives.
