We asked Bergeron about the ins and outs of making such a time-intensive and captivating film:
The Creators Project: Can you briefly outline the plot in your own words?
Ray McCarthy Bergeron: Through the perspective of a boy, you witness a personal story that recalls 9 very specific instances of my life. These are memories that have repeatedly haunted me throughout my youth and adulthood. The memories regularly reflected times of bliss mixed with sullen, miserable moments. Ultimately the film is about cycles; a story about growing up, religion and relationships.
