Director Statement

Simply being aware of a loved one's vices does not constitute a road to recovery. I feel as though addiction narratives so often end with the addict making a step towards ending their dependency, but I wanted to portray a story in which all parties understand that "healing" isn't an option, as grim as that may seem. Sometimes, moving forward simply means sharing an understanding.
