Director Statement

"intricacies are just cracks in the wall" is a story that has been tugging at my heart, begging me to write it for years now. I turned the novel into a film because I wanted to see Cassidy breathe in a body that wasn't simply a voice in my head or words on a page. Sarah Fe Harris-Juarbe really brings Cassidy to life in ways I never could have imagined possible.
