Director Statement

I created "Breathless" with a desire to explore the idea of enduring love in a hopeless world. The story revolves around the question: what would you do if the person you loved the most turned into a zombie? Would you accept that they were gone, or would you stop at nothing just to find a glimmer of hope, that perhaps their mind could be recovered? How long would you fight to get them back? How long would you wait to accept that they may truly be gone, forever?
