Director Statement

It is a horrendous time to live for the youth at this day and time following the circumstances around them affecting their psychological and emotional stability especially with some family backgrounds being very detrimental. However, people raised on love see things differently from people raised on survival and thus some may never understand the depth of the need for connection. It is time connection is reemphasised in parenting and sibling relation, thus the motive behind this film. This film is dear to me as it depicts what someone really near and very dear to me goes through and is surviving its effects.
