Director Statement

This film is a story of empowerment, in which you are constantly rooting for the underdog. Stacy has been tricked into thinking that she is less than and she is afraid to speak up out of fear of being ostracized. All Stacy wants is to be loved, but she can't do that because she doesn't know how to love herself. She is searching for validation from the wrong person and suffers the consequences of it.

We want this film to be something that women everywhere can find comfort in. It is a message to stand up for yourself because you are more powerful than you think you are.
