Director Statement

Definitions of love range. Its strength is undefinable. It carries a different power from one person to the next.

However, we live in an emotional wreck of a world that for centuries have decided what love means, in turn, what hatred should be.

What love is or isn’t, isn’t the answer that is sought.

The answer is a question— how do you power love?

Be it the conditions you’ve learned, taught, or… conditioned.

As a subversion to movies which teaches us ‘show don’t tell’ — A story doesn’t end because of conversation. This film is an embrace for emotions— a story where the love has the last laugh.

Therefore, you are invited to this comedy of romantics and to have… conversations.
