# I FIGHT FOR

*I only take credit for directing, editing and compositing.

A short Synopsis:
Hope matters because it lives within all of us. It's the light that will guide us away from getting lost in the darkness. It's also the reason the future exists because without it, the dreamers won't be able to see beyond the present. This is the power of hope and what #I FIGHT FOR.
