Director Statement

This short film is also a personal tribute to a very close friend of mine. I was inspired to make this film during the summer of 2015 when suddenly a friend of mine, only 22 years old, diagnosed with a lymphoma disease. I wrote my character “Yorgos” based on some of his real life events. Unfortunately, his situation got worse and lost the “fight” with the lymphoma on February 2016. I never got to tell him that I was making my first short film based on him, as I wanted him to surprise him and see the final film. So this is a personal challenge for me, to make this short film meaningful by giving hope and strength to many people across the globe.
