Director’s Statement

We all die but true love never does.

Setting this story against the backdrop of an ancient Chinese poem allowed me to position the love story in a more eternal way, one that extends beyond our horizon into the stars above.

In this small, low-budget indie drama, perhaps one can find some hope for love in troubled times.

DC Brandon
