Director Statement

Growing up to divorced parents, in houses in which I never had a private space, I always felt like I don't have enough space to exist, and to be whoever I needed to be. In this film, I emphasize the importance of a place where one can feel safe and honest with one's self. The film suggests that sometimes this place can be an unconventional, colorful and creative space, which one create themselves, where one can hide from their daily routine, be a kid once more, and find peace.
