Director Statement

‏This screenplay has always been an obsession for me, in which I decided to put that into a story about the life of a child. Yet, this is the story of humankind for all his life. The fact that the most realistic truth in our lives which is death has its own perspective of each person and in each age and the fact that we are so involved in life and its aspects that we become oblivious about it while death is approaching in time for everyone in different shapes and everybody will have a different experience of it.
‏For the protagonist of the movie, a boy who is having a childish competition with his pals, death has the shape of an innocent girl and her footsteps sound is inviting him to a brand-new life.
