In a 2013 interview with IndieWire, Ryan Carmichael said of the project: "The aim of this film is to fuse different artistic and intellectual elements to create a unique and dynamic dramatic experience. Starting with hip hop, I wanted to tap into the 'conscious' and improvisatory elements of the music in order to shine a light on some of the socioeconomic issues in America today. Existentialist philosophy comes into play as a mechanism to underscore the experience of Millenials who feel lost in a world where nothing is as they planned it. A 'Postmodernist' narrative structure is employed to frame the revolutionary spirit of the characters hoping to shape the world."
