Add Director Biography
Director Statement

This story is inspired by true events in my life.

I wrote this script over 14 years ago in New York City. In New York, I was trying to make my way as an aspiring Actor. The wheels quickly fell off and I slipped deep into addiction and alcoholism.
One day on a New York City Subway train, hungover and feeling guilty about leaving my Autistic son behind while his Mom raised him alone, I decided to start writing my own story. A story about the guilt that I felt and how much I loved my son and just wanted to be with him, but couldn’t because my addiction had a stranglehold on me.
In the film the lead character is on a train reflecting on his own life and sharing his story with a total stranger. We see the man's life play out in a series of flashbacks, dreams, and heartbreaking memories of his own childhood. A broken relationship with an alcoholic father of his own and a mother who would do anything to keep him safe.
I put down the script as I went through my own real-life recovery and raised my Autistic son by myself without his Mom (the tables turned). Once my son became more self-sufficient, I picked it up again and finished the story.
This film ultimately shows the power of hope, faith, love, and prayer. Because when I lost everything, those things were all I had left.
The purpose of this story is to bring hope and inspiration to those who suffer from addiction and to raise awareness and celebrate those who care for children and adults with disabilities.

This is a story of Love, Hope, Faith, Repentance, and Redemption.

To God goes all the Glory.

Blessings,
David
