Filmmaker's note

Water flows, it's constant -- it can be fast, but it can also be slow. It's all still overwhelming.

From birth to death the flow is constantly changing and moving. Being present, only when looking back at the memories, rather than the moments shown. These people, voices, and places will never stay the same.
