I’ve become sceptical of the unwritten rule that 
just because a boy and girl appear in the same feature, a romance must 
ensue. Rather, I want to portray a slightly different relationship, one 
where the two mutually inspire each other to live - if I’m able to, then
 perhaps I’ll be closer to portraying a true expression of love.
