Director Statement: This film is dedicated to my 20's, as a kinder acknowledgment than the one I had, for the unnamed restlessness that accompanied it. Celebration of self does not mean you don't want more or better, but it does free you to enjoy the power of believing the person you are right now is the right one to help you grow.
