Director Statement

‘I wanted to make this film for everyone feeling a little lost and afraid of the future. Finishing a large chapter of your life and not knowing what happens next is stressful and scary and I wanted to make a film showing that, while sending the message that it’s ok to not have any plans.
I was inspired to tell this story as it’s something my friends and I experienced when we finished school. Yet we felt it was wrong to feel this way. Lack of support in these situations is stressful and unhelpful so I created this story to follow this incredibly close friend group where only one person feels lost and afraid. I chose to show her fear of loss and the unknown through her escapism, getting entirely lost within their game as a safeguard against reality. I wanted to show that this is a normal response to fear and while we can get carried away; if we stop ignoring the problem, we can find solutions. This is a story everyone can relate to, so I wanted to make it fun, cute and sweet to lighten the load we feel at these pivotal moments in our lives.'
