Director’s statement

Megan Wennberg says:

I love the character of Bernard and I feel badly for putting him through so much in this film. He’s a beautiful dreamer and, unlike so many of us, he has the courage to follow his dream no matter what.

I admire this quality in people and I wanted to make a film where this passion is rewarded.”
