Director Statement

I gravitate towards projects that allow me access to explore emotional depths and deep questions about our humanity that we often do not want to face. This film afforded me the opportunity to do just that. I hope it helps build the empathy that I have found by walking in the shoes of these compassionate caregivers, even just for a brief moment. I believe if we are going to grow as a society we need to walk in others shoes more often.
