Writer/Director James Cernero and DP Steven Carmona (who’s worked with me on the LSL Life Docuseries), together created some beautiful, powerful images. The performances from Annie Golden, Danielle Burgess, Nikiya Mathis, Anna Russell, Olan Montgomery, and Anastasia Veronica Lee are heartbreaking and not to be missed. I was literally wiping tears from my eyes on set after several takes.
