The Author explores different cultures, characters, and places with impactful journeys and life-changing influences.

The film’s creators drew inspiration from life’s set up which they describe as a novel that one has to go through every chapter to get its full essence and experience. “Every aspect of life must be experienced. You cannot skip any part and it is a fact that you won’t enjoy every part of life. Just like a novel, you have to watch every minute, meet every character.,” they shared. “Some chapters make you cry for weeks. You will see things you don’t want to watch and there are moments you don’t want to be over, life is a journey. Not every novel ends with a happy ending but sure that’s what the reader is wishing for.”
The idea for the film was borne out of human’s desire for happiness as a destination in their lives.
