    Director's Statement

    What could be an alternative 'father-daughter' relationship if the father is incapable of being responsible? It could develop into a twisted unusual friendship. Nowadays, many children are coming from a divorced or broken family. I believe this 'alternative relationship' happens a lot and I'm excited to be the first director to portray it on screen.

    The quality of the central performances guarantees your investment in these two lost souls and whether they might reach safe ground and the possibility of change.
