Director Statement

This surrealistic drama hits close to home, especially those who are carrying the weight of the world as breadwinners of the family.

As a parent myself, it is important that we should also learn to take care and value ourselves when the big bad world is wearing you down, not just physically but spiritually and emotionally as well.

And to those who abuse them should think things over because once they've had enough, there is no going back. And you wouldn't know what you had until they are gone. Just because we are dispensable, doesn't give you a reason to treat them unfairly.
