Director Statement

We have films about global warming and quite possibly endless films about Donald Trump. But one thing I have noticed and other people haven't been noticing is the lack of empathy. I feel if we don't start having empathy our planet will be destroyed from the lack of empathy. Not having empathy on our only planet is the key to our very existence. It's my burning hope with my film I can change hearts and make people more kinder, empathic, and loving.
