"Why I told the story I chose to tell is I made a decision to awaken a new way of being, to show how truly powerful we are by unlocking that inner potential, through a story that youth, young adults and old can find someone to relate to. We all have asked the question ”Who Are We Really?” says Kim Marie, the Executive Producer/Director.

Kim Marie also has this to say about the movie: " It’s a journey of self discovery, about family, friendship, sisterhood, instinct, light verses dark, growth, love and loss.  Yes, in nature this is a Dramatic, Paranormal, Suspense Thriller. However, it's also an analogy, the story is teaching life lessons in a way people can relate and understand. The depth of this film is truly unique."

The options for rewards represent a broad spectrum, leaving the door open for anyone to help finance the movie and be part of making something spectacular. Plus you can always say you helped make a movie as an Indiegogo Associate Producer.

"This also can help pave the way for how films are made. We want to see films we can relate to, that move us, that change how we think and challenge our points of view. That’s why we love to see movies." says Kim Marie, the Executive Producer.
