Director Statement

Suicide is not the solution to any problem. The solution is to fight back. Before taking such decision, think about those smiles that your parents has when they see you.
And when you fight against the drugs , you are fighting for your future. Always remember that drugs are the twin enemies of both ambition and hopes of humanity. Learn to say “ NO TO DRUGS “
