Behind The Scenes

Directors Statement

Time knocks on our door when we’re kids, and we’re too busy playing to answer. Time knocks again when we’re adults, but we’re too busy working to answer. And eventually, you have to embrace that time may or may not be on your side.

This film is an expression of everything I hope for. Everything I dream of. Everything I fear.
