Director Statement

I felt compelled to write this film a year ago, following the end of a close personal relationship. Like Kalli in the film, I needed to find a language for loss, to find gratitude for what I most wished had not happened.

This best explains my appetite to tell a story of that healing process, set in an image-based social media culture that often rewards curation and ironic detachment, over sincerity and transformation.
