America was built on the backs of immigrants and protected by the courage of veterans – yet both of these groups have grown increasingly marginalized in today's society. The best way to explore such complex issues in the context of an independent film was to create an intimate love story with universal implications.

About the Production: From Director Sean Mullin: The inspiration for this film comes from a very personal place. As an officer in the New York Army National Guard, I was a first-responder on September 11th, 2001. I spent almost a year as the Officer in Charge of the soldiers stationed down at Ground Zero – while performing stand-up comedy at night. After witnessing firsthand how our country decided to deal with the attacks – unending warfare, rampant xenophobia, financial deregulation – I felt compelled to set my debut feature film within this world.
