Director Statement

In my first short film, I wanted to talk about the cycle of violence and sins in the world of teenagers who did not have proper attention and upbringing from their parents due to various reasons. The film is made in a style that has attracted me since childhood, and I pay tribute to the directors who significantly influenced my perception of cinema.
