Director's Statement

It is a film about a loss that nothing can fulfill, but also about love and people who help us survive in these difficult times. I decided that this is an important topic that affects many of us. In this story, I wanted to focus on the importance of supporting our loved ones when we ourselves are in pain. I chose a child hero for this because I thought he would give this difficult subject a bit of lightness and distance.
