Director Statement
Usually there are world-wide events and disasters, but at the same time there are other small crises in parallel to it, living on the margins of society. This film is presenting this small crisis from both its social and human sides. Concerning the social side, the film shows the power of the family and how the eastern society commits the unofficial love affairs between youth, on the other hand the society complicates everything if the lovers needed to make their relationship official.The film presents a small aside crisis that happens to a young man and his girl that love each other, but they are submitted to the power and guardianship of the society all over the time. Which may lead to a big split inside them and between each other. Concerning the humanity side, the film shows how sometimes we believe that it’ll be a disaster if something special happens and that we will come to the rescue if we prevent it from happening. But if this »something » never happens from the beginning we find that it was not a real « rescue, » and that we rescued something but we lost another good thing at the same time.
