The story behind the film
uTransfer started brewing in my head when I was ruminating on my parents’ immigration process into the U.S. They did everything they could to give my brother and I better opportunities, and that was one that they felt was necessary. That mixed with me watching a lot of Black Mirror during the time really got my writing juices going. It was a fun process because it became a nice outlet for me to show my love and appreciation for my Mom and Dad and all the hurdles they had to jump through whether it be culturally, socially, socio-economically, or all the above for the sake of family.
