“To have Kellie S. Williams and Darius McCrary., from Family Matters, the hit television show from the 90s. You know to be a part of your film. Your first film is an amazing opportunity.”

Davis said so many people helped the movie, including her parents, pastor, and community members.
“I was not alone with this. In this process, it took a team. It truly takes a team. I’m only one person. So I could not do all of the jobs. Even though you’re wearing many hats, to make sure that production is running the way that it needs to. And budget is where it needs to be. You have catering. You have to have people to help you. And it’s OK to ask for help. And it was so amazing to have community support. I mean, Marion County were small, but they really supported me.”
