This story was inspired by a conversation I had with my Chinese friends who lament about the increasing pollution back in their hometowns. The initial idea I had was unoriginal: affluent guy goes back to hometown to see it polluted, flashbacks to when he was a poor kid having fun in pristine nature. I tossed that idea out for a story that puts the viewer in the shoes of the polluters. Why do they do what they do? If circumstances allowed them to, surely they would provide for their families in a manner that did not harm the environment.
This story took much longer to do because the concept was a complicated one to convey in just 11 shots. I also had to forsake the LA, ECU and DA shots because they were inappropriate for the story.
