Director Statement

I wanted to leave the ending open ended to the audience's interpretation which is why it is left on a cliff hanger. I wanted to convey the story as less about the chemical outbreak and more about the distrust between the characters by building upon the tension in the room in scenes in which they are carrying small talk.
