Danilo Parra peels away the layers of a family relationship for Carlie Hanson - whose dad may be a bit of a rascal. But he's certainly not the only one involved in a criminal enterprise...


"Back in My Arms is about having a connection with someone so strong that you will do anything to protect that person. Sometimes in an over-protective way. When I was young my dad would go away out of state to work and it always made me feel so emotional and I would try anything I could to get him to stay. This video touches on these emotions. Some love songs are about family connection, not every song is about a romantic partner.

"I also grew up around a lot of cats and they would die all the time in different ways. Huckleberry Finn used to have a tradition of swinging a dead cats tail over a grave and I got to act as him once in a play where I talked about swinging dead cats around. It made me laugh at the time and I felt that for the kids to stop an Armored truck, they would use what they have access to.

"This video was filmed in East Kingston, NY where I met some amazing people who ended up acting in this story. Thanks to East Kingston and Cliff Cole for making this story possible."
