Director's Statement

 I once had a very vivid dream, my father dragged my brothers back into the boat, they were white as snow and had drowned. I was always fearful for my dad and brothers while they were out, thankfully they are all alive today but they do this still. you know what I used to think. What if? What if they died? Well this short is the sad what if of a little kid that wanted to make movies when he grew up. -- Hörður Skúlason
