Hi! We are Gekko Films, a group of final year students from Institute of Technical Education doing our Final Year Project. Our film aims to spread awareness about giving ex-offenders a second chance in the society. What is interesting about the film is that we are incorporating Cooking in the film to show the bond within Alan's family.
