The Ship We Built
THE SHIP WE BUILT tells of two girls who imagine a world where they can dream, learn, grow, and be together without limits of words and empty homes. The narrator finds a safe place in her pal, Dóra. They give each other an uncharted strength and magic that they didn’t know existed outside of their drawings. Together they build something new.

This story contains quiet bits of magic. It holds layers of vulnerability, pain, gentle wonder, warmth, and power. It carries an LGBTQ narrative often overlooked--it’s not about marriage, it’s not about a simple kind of love. It is about the beginnings: the realisation as a child that so many ways of connecting and building exist. It is about that spark and strength that comes with the realisation of a relationship big and untaught."
Later THE SHIP WE BUILT, inspired by the director's own coming out journey as trans and more, was developed into a young reader's novel published by Penguin Random House in 2020.
