This is the time in America to celebrate diverse voices. We’re at a point in cinema where stories must reflect the times we live in. With this debut feature, the main goal was to add to the evolution of LGBTQ stories. This film is about LOVE. Plain and simple. If you’ve felt love, lost love, longed for love or enjoy the formation of those exact four letters... this film is for you. All I hope is that this story is viewed like life: patiently and with open hearts.
