Director Statement

We wanted to make a twisted film that embodied how we feel about being a minority in the present day. How you think you break free from a stereotype or someone’s misconception of you only to be met by another. In a way, it feels like a constant cycle of imprisonment.

That’s the ideology behind it packaged as a Dark comedy/horror. Hope you enjoy the ride.
