Add Director Biography
Director Statement

Around 2008-2016 my childhood home was dealing with financial difficulties and ultimately faced foreclosure. Between this era in my life, my entire family separated and we all had to live our own lives. Now our old home is remodeled and there's a new family living there. That's when I realized how much homes meant to people, especially as you age. How much of your life and things you had in it can suddenly go away and never come back. The only way to revisit that place is your memories and dreams.
The film is for any child or adult who had to face moving on at some point in their life, especially if that place is your home.
