Director Statement

SOCK IT TO ME is a perversion of my own personal experience, composed of my inner desire for acceptance and need to please. My stories are always dark, always sourced from real pain, but designed to make us laugh, to untie the agonizing knots within us. This is the story of two friends, friends who pushed each other away with their own problems and are inevitably pulled back together in a time of need. Both of these characters are shrouded in darkness, and they give in to their worst selves when they are hurt. Only compassion can unearth the light and warmth under the surface.
