Director Statement

This film was a absolute no budget film I made while staying at Basel House of Film's Filmmaker Residency (made by Kurzfilmtage Winterthur, Gaessli Film Festival, JugendFilmTage, ZugerFilmTage).
Foaad, is the father of a filmmaker friend of mine who I met at the Gaessli Film Festival in Basel.
Foaad immigrated to Switzerland after the Iranian revolution because he is a Baha'i and that religion is not allowed in Iran.
