    A modern version of Little Red Riding Hood.
    In this short fantasy combining live action and digital animation, a young woman is caught between two cultures. Her family is from Pakistan and although she was raised according to their dictates she lives in Holland and is constantly surrounded by reminders of the Dutch way of life. When the young woman’s family insists she take part in an arranged marriage, she rebels and strikes out on her own. She soon discovers that while she has ties to two ways of life, she doesn’t fully belong to either world.

    I think living life and human beings painful experiences inspires me to make stories. I loved Like father, Like son from Koreeda. It's a beautiful piece.
