Director's Statement

As an action packed thriller, the movie is eventually about characters in pressure and stress from very realistic problems faced daily in the real world relating to family, health and finance. It's an opposite to hero's journey, where in this case the character's journey spiraling down deeper into the black hole, his/her control no matter how much violence they exert with no light at the end of the tunnel.
