This story is a blend of old fashion romance and neo-noir, a merging of the old with the new. Love and hope are the best of things in the worst of times. We felt this story echoed current sentiment in our country where optimism and hope for the future are waning. This story was a challenge to tell because a great romance should elicit a roller coaster of emotions including empathy with other human beings. Above all, the audience has to cry both from sorrow and joy because all great romances involve tears. I believe we succeeded.
