Writer Statement

Storytelling is culture. Cine-storytelling is a powerful tool to influence the cultural narrative. I have been struck lately by the enormity of this power and have found that even in a SciFi/Action-Adventure format poignant topics can be broached that impact us all. Here, with less intent and more delight, this fanciful story of Family is able to address hypocrisy, inclusion, immigration, "other-ism" as well as the stigma of mental illness and gun violence... without beating a drum or anyone over the head with a Woke-stick.
