A 10 Ev Production
Directed by Arpège Lundyn
“Deserve” follows the story of a career driven woman who collides with her triggers as she and her partner begin to unravel the value of their relationship.“Deserve” was created to relate to those who live in the resistance of surrendering. Surrendering to being seen, and surrendering to the effects of truly honoring yourself. The intention for this film was to put a voice to our most vulnerable thoughts and bring beauty into allowing that vulnerability to be seen.
