Director Statement

Murphy's Law was inspired by a number of stories and talks shared among friends, all related to romantic mishaps and tied to the same wish - wouldn't it be nice to have a plan for everything? As we grow up and enter the adult world, it seems that everyone knows what they're doing - almost as if they've planned anything and everything out. But really, in love or in life, the best way to move forward is to be open to things as they come.
