The idea for this film came when we were at a family get together at the beach house location
we shot at and I overheard an elderly family member refuse to come down the stairs because
she was afraid to fall. That moment made me look at the fear of falling from a whole new
perspective. Usually we associate it with falling from great heights,
but here was someone afraid to even fall to the floor just below
her feet. It got me thinking about how our body slowly prepares us for the inevitability of
death. So I chose to frame this story as a dramatic thriller about the human spirit versus the
frailty of the aging body.
