Director Statement

Originally written prior to the pandemic, this motion picture was made while in quarantine lockdown by convincing my wife (who has no prior acting experience) to play the lead. The two of us bootstrapped this movie all by ourselves, and are pretty proud of the effort. Thank you for watching.
