I committed to this screenplay after Eugenia’s first draft and it developed into a full family project inspired by love. It’s a personal story for us, connected as we are to veterans, inter-racial families and to the stories we’d heard from Eugenia’s mom and dad about life during and after WWII. The shot selection and color grade of the film were inspired by the look and feel of films from that era.
