Director Statement

The subject of this film is something that is very dear to me. I struggled with depression for several years. During this time, I felt a lack of self-worth, that which my few friends fervently attempted to keep from attenuating within me. But through this film, I hope to encourage those who are experiencing similar feelings. You are worth something. You are beautiful. Somebody loves you. Bless your face.
