“I began making the film out of curiosity – to not only know more about the effects PTSD can have on a person and their family, but to also find out if there was a connection between Guy’s struggles and his passion for all things Disney. I learned Guy’s lifelong fascination with Disney was not only centered around its innocence and warmth, but has been a constant source of his own self-worth and motivation. By surrounding himself with Disney, he’s also able to enter a place that allows him to escape loneliness and the negative thought patterns that can occur in isolation.”
