Director's Statement

Loosely inspired by characters from Rainer Fassbinder's "The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant", which is also one of my favorite film. Almost did the stage production 15 years ago, and reading the play inspire me to do a short film. Fascinated by the power dynamic in the characters relationship and exploring again on the theme of how far one would go for love and can one really forget their love one.
