Director Statement

Vincent experienced domestic violence through two of his best girl friends. As a lawyer, an artist and first of all a man, he witnessed the injustice and lack of efficiency within the French judicial system and the climate of tension and fear during lockdown.

Also, he noticed how, paradoxically, social media can put distance between people, and isolate them. It urged him to deliver this message toward this global problematic.

During the lockdown in Paris, France following the COVID-19 crisis in 2020, Vincent was compelled to continue making films and decided to write and direct for the first time ever. Barefoot Studio Pictures collaborated during post production from Brooklyn, NY and is proud to help bring this beautiful story of hope, friendship and above all else, love to a wider audience.
