Director Statement

This experimental film was based on the emotions I felt reading stories of sick people who faced their death alone in their own household. The loneliness and isolation these people feel will drive them to find one last moment of reconnection to the people that made their life happy. One last moment of comfort before they are finally at peace. I also wanted to show how with the prominence of social media and modern technology, the younger generations are connected more than ever, but can the older generations still keep up with it? Does modern connectivity last up until one's final days?

Let this be a wake up call for the modern generation to appreciate the importance of personal connections.
