It is clear that the violence we suffer socially in recent years was the impetus for the creation of «Pet». Without, nevertheless, it being a film that focuses on current events. I committed to that story because it concerns me very strongly how a child can be mentally deformed due to the treatment of his parents. As I am also concerned of the consequences of materialism. That "race" of demonstrating wealth and power, for the sake of which we losing ourselves and our children. We lose the moment... and the future.
