Director Statement

This story is based on real incident. I just thought that there are many peoples who actually don't know about what is LGBTQ ! but this film don't show the meaning of LGBTQ it will show situation that what happen when people don't care about feelings of other person that what he or she is feeling, we always impose our personal thoughts, experiences to make them understand but i think sometimes we need to understand them, show love & respect to each and every person of society. That what’sthe motive of this short film. If we talk about this topic so, according to me this is a very sensitive topic of our society and we need to take care of them, give equal rights to each and everyone because one thing is common among all is that we are human being. I hope this film give some message to our society that what we want.
