Director Statement

At first glance you might think this film is about ancient statues and the art black market. However the true message of the film goes much deeper than that.

This film is about relationships and how far we are willing to go in order to save something that might already be broken. It’s about the difficult decisions we have to make and the danger we put ourselves into for the people that are important to us.

But most of all this film is about love. Love that transcends society, labels and people. It is about the kind of eternal love that remains in our hearts forever even if we decide to part ways.

This story comes from a personal place in my heart. Think of it as an unconventional love story. My goal was to portray love in its purest form and tell the story of the people who feel it.
