Director Statement

This film was one I had hoped to shoot live-action for a couple of years. During the COVID-19 outbreak, the decision was made to produce this film as an animated production. In as chaotic a year as 2020, I feel this becomes more timely than I expected when I conceived the idea. The isolation, the fear of a violent and diseased world outside, with tensions running high, this film takes those feelings to a darker place and fantastic heights.
