Director Statement

Everyone has their own dreams. Most of the time, they are about who we are and who we would like to be. Especially children and teenagers have the craziest ideas about where they want to go in life. Much of that turns out to be a difficult path once we are grown up, causing many to give up on it. With the film “What if…?” I would like to show that every dream that even remotely realistic deserves a chance - for if you never even try to fulfill your dreams, you have already lost.
