Filmmaker’s statement

“I wanted to pay respect to my hometown of Fort McMurray, Alberta by telling a story influenced by how some of my friends and I grew up.

I collected and consulted friends of mine about things that happened to us while we were growing up, and how these experiences shaped us.

Each character is inspired by someone I’ve known my whole life and the situations are collections of  memories (good and bad) that each one of us has lived with.

It’s very important to tell stories that mean something to me by drawing on real life instances and situations.”
