Director's statement
Take Out Girl is meant to bridge the gap between the “Haves” and “Have-nots” by dramatizing a situation that could motivate a person with great potential to choose a life of crime. American prisons system are full of low-level drug dealers. The general sentiment toward those prisoners is “They Broke the law and deserved the punishment they get. They’re bad people.” But is it that simple? In Take Out Girl, we depict both a family and a neighborhood in which, crime, is passed down from one generation to next via environmental influence or sheer desperation.
