Director Statement

Through this story I reflect on how complicated the relationship between two siblings can be and how it changes over time.
Elder siblings tend to pave the way for the younger ones, either making them follow their path or showing them which path not to follow having faced it themselves and realising what would be best for their sibling. This role of guiding the younger ones and protecting them from hardships is often unnoticed and I wanted to remind the audience of the contributions made by people in and around their lives which have shaped up their life to what it is now.
