I was born and raised in New York City, and seeing what Covid-19 did to the place I call home really struck a nerve with me. During the lockdown it was a complete ghost town. I needed to tell a story about how I felt seeing the city that never sleeps, fall asleep. I love New York. We have all had a hard time this year, and I wanted to express some of those feelings of loss in a movie that might bring a little bit of joy amongst all the pain.
