About the Film:
To us, this is the perfect story to describe the millennial generation and one of its central struggles: having control over your career while trying to balance everything else in life. It seems like now more than ever, people want to work for themselves instead of for the man, so they can have more of a say over their lives. However, this lifestyle isn’t always stable and it’s tempting to get into the mindset that you’re not doing enough. It makes you want to push, and push, and push…but sometimes you can push too far. Our character is right in the middle of this struggle and he’s as desperate as ever.
Current Status: In post-production, fundraising.
