"I keep trying to find ways of dramatically presenting the debate between science and faith. I like the idea of listening in to the private conversation between a doctor and a priest - and showing publically how that affects an individual, or a group of people, like a family. I want to take an audience somewhere that they didn't think of going to. Somewhere fresh and unexpected."
