Director Statement

I wanted to make a film that transports you into the shoes of a person who is vulnerable. I'm aware that mental health is a topic that has been done many times in cinema, however I never felt like it is accurately portrayed, often times it is used as a gimmick and doesn't really capture the feeling of alienation. This was my way of trying to communicate those feelings.
