A BOY&BELL and BREED PRODUCTION 2013

“ The idea for Light actually started with a horrible nightmare I had a few years ago. It inspired me to explore the mental power parents have over their children. And I also wanted to explore that interesting breaking point when children realize they can make their own important decisions about their life, basically the moment when they aren’t children anymore. ”
