Key Quote: Says Snow, “I had this idea in my early 20s, it was taken from some life experience…(the couple in the film) are definitely toxic for each other, I think that’s what the message of the movie is. You meet a soulmate, but it’s the wrong timing and you have to go through different experiences and learn how to love yourself before you can actually give yourself to somebody else.”
