I wanted to make a break-up film between two friends who learn that they've outgrown each other. I was interested in exploring what happens when someone you love asks you to do something you hate. I think we've all felt that pressure before, and I was interested in the dilemma of telling a friend "no" versus agreeing with them. This is a personal story based on a friendship I had that fell apart. I wanted to explore that while touching on other important themes for me, including mental health and how that intersects with masculinity.
