This film is in part auto biographical to the director. It is also inspired by Native American’s
respect for animal life. The film was shot with the intention of grasping a somewhat timeless
theme, a boy and his bicycle. And over this theme was to be played more contemporary themes
facing Americans and the worlds mental and physical challenges. Symbolism plays a large part
of the film, i.e.: the boy is always bicycling away from us. Is he leaving this world behind? The
film was written and edited to leave a lasting impression by not finding closure at the end. Is it
the voice of memory, or an old soul departing.
