Writer/director/producer: Thi Vo

Filmmaker’s statement

Thi Vo says:

“This short is based on my childhood. Having grown up around domestic violence I’ve understood that though this is the world I’m going through, many others have gone through their own rough childhood as well. I learned to keep my head up high at a young age.

It’s always tragic when you don’t realize what you’ve got until you lose it and I hope that parents, no matter at what stage, can realize they have the power to shape things around them and provide a beautiful life for their own family.”

    Wow!!! Well produced and written; growing up under similar circumstances and around those that have experienced domestic abuse, I connected with the work immediately and was drawn to the very end. Thank you for creating a beautiful and true-to-self piece.
