Director Statement

The main purpose was to give a sense of hope and change. The film is a free adaptation of Anna Llenas' book "The Void". It inspired me as a women to feel the changes. I aimed to preserve the main message of the book, but also to make it not just a children's movie, but another piece of art that appeals to everyone. So it is an up-to-date film about society, social issues and traumas... It also carries other symbols such as a changing body, a changing lifestyle or a changing psychological state.
