About the Film:

If you would’ve told 12-year-old me that he still would not have made a feature film by the time he was 26, he wouldn’t have believed you! It’s a really personal achievement for me making this feature film, I just hope everyone can relate to the film as it opens all sorts of emotional problems, I want people to relate to this but also be entertained, to escape for 90 minutes and just get taken on an enjoyable but poignant journey!

Current Status: We are currently fundrasing on Kickstarter.
