Director Statement

Those who are closest to us can represent the most destructive and volatile relationships in our lives. We can lose the ability to control our mind for reasons we can’t quite explain. .We go through the motions and pretend everything is fine until it to late.
I am intrigued by this kind of drama and rich storytelling that stimulates the imagination and challenges the audience to fill in the blanks.
​Our script was written to fit our location. The good energy that was put into creating this project exposed to me a fascination that I grew to respect and admire more profoundly than I thought possible about filmmaking. I am so excited to share this film with audiences.
