Director's Statement

The story for Monty and the Runaway Furnace has humble beginnings as its main character is based off of one of my childhood neighbors who was a kind and loving plumber working well into his 90s but losing his wife entirely too early in life. Grief is a powerful emotion effecting everyone different so what happens when two people's grief lead them to fight over the same object? That is the question at the heart of our film and we hope you enjoy it.
