Director's Statement:

In making this piece we set out to construct a modern day tragedy that depicts the downfall of a man and the vile choices he's willing to make when forced to chose between himself or whats right. As you probably know making movies is not for the faint of heart. This production taught us a lot about what movies are and how they get made. It was bootcamp. It was hard. But now it has its own life and stands on its own legs. For every cast and crew member involved, we are very proud of the work and excited to present it to anyone and everyone who is willing to watch.
