Director Statement

The intention for this movie is made for experiment, I was gonna make a feature film titled Incognito. but wanted to exercise my hands with this film. So I wrote a short story of a person, lost in non linearic reality that involves the power of god. The ability to exist in different places at the same time. But is it agony or a gift? Omnipresencial existence could only be achieved before life or afterlife. Unborn or dead is the term. And the movie turned out to be good. Well incognito was not made. For different reasons.
