Director Statement

In December of 2019, I had the idea of making a short film about a girl who is searching for a loved one. However, my biggest problem with that idea was that I didn't know where it would lead to. As such, I tried to build the idea by thinking about the locations I could get to shoot, I thought about an old building that would be nice to be the major location of the short film. With that, I unlocked myself and I finished the first draft.
