Director's statement

Anders Matthesen
We take our well-established universe and gallery of characters from Checkered Ninja (1) to the next level in a road movie that contains crime story elements and a ticking clock. Moving the action to Thailand is a challenge but also has lots of visual opportunities. The family journey gives the audience an identifiable experience. The crime story is far more dangerous for Alex, with more at stake.

Two major themes permeate the film: one shows that it’s not about what you look like, but what you have inside you. C. N. is afraid his new body with red hearts makes him look like a girl. Little Honey Bee surprises C.N. by being the one to save the day.

The second theme is C.N.’s idea that the goal justifies the means. Alex teaches C.N. the importance of the process over the result, of camaraderie and of being a decent person.
