Director Statement

Sometimes you need to go beyond reality if you want to reach the truth.
This film is the truth and my belief about the creation and captivity of human in the world...
Maybe this philosophical opinion of me is so harsh but I am completely honest about it...
This film is actually a manifesto about the subject of our existence in this world that everyone can translate according to their own lived experience.
