    Director's Statement

    Man has always lived with his hopes and fears, all of which have given meaning to his society and life, meanings that make him continue living as a child to form his social motivations in the society. Hopes that turn into failures in adulthood and get replaced with controlled fears and then this awareness makes him passive against all challenges he faces in life. Amir belongs to the same group who tries to use his awareness to act and behave beyond wrong and right when everyone around turn into mannequins.
