Director Statement

I chose to write and direct this film because throughout my adulthood I had difficulty finding love and my grandmother always told me, “There is someone for everyone”. This movie just does not reflect her saying but also reflects my personal beliefs in finding someone special. There were some challenges which we faced while making this movie; the main was how to take shots while keeping the twist at the end. And after watching the final cut it looks like we have come a long way from where we began.
