Director’s statement

Ben Roberts says:

“I have always been fascinated by the story of David and Goliath.

This story was very inspiring and so I decided to loosely adapt it into a noir world. I loved the symbolism and the simplicity within biblical story and I thought it asked many questions without forcing an answer.

With this film I wanted to compare and explore the way our society views justice and what justice means to the individual. I hope it is enjoyed.”
