Director Statement

As a filmmaker interested in psychoanalytic subjects, I always wonder if dailiness is the most significant matter precluding us from facing ourselves and thinking about what we do. I considered the Coronavirus outbreak from the compulsory isolation aspect leading to stopping routine life. The lockdown period changed the life of many people was not necessarily desirable for all. It was unpredictable and looked like every person explored a new aspect of their character.
