Director Statement

You CANNOT control external factors that happen to you. You CANNOT control the weather, your heart beating, and you can't control other people. A man can ONLY control his state of mind when everything goes wrong. As a young student, I always admired the different methods people embrace to motivate themselves and get things done. when things don't go as planned, what you THINK is your best weapon. Active thinking leads to action, negative or positive, and being proactive in times of hardship makes things easier. This film will tell the story of two people dealing with their life plans being put on hold and the different ways they react to disorder in their lives.
