Director Statement

I made this film because I feel that people in this day and age, especially the hopeless romantics like myself, can sometimes give up on relationships too easily at the first sign of an obstacle because they don't want to feel any kind of heartache, but in life, you sometimes have to go through the hard times to get to the most rewarding ones. So with this film, I wanted to convey the message that you have to let yourself be vulnerable and fall first, in order to fall in love.
