    Director's Statement

    Gaza’s story starts with a simple question: what is the primary tool that human beings used? Yet, no question is simple for a boy like Gaza, who in such an early age, had to turn into a human trafficker. In this brutal reality people are just objects. Unexceptional objects that need to be carried from one place in the world to another. Neither do they have a name nor a past. Neither do they have feeling nor dreams. Therefore, Gaza discovered the answer of the very first question just when he was a boy: “the primary tool that human beings used was another human being”. And the value of that tool, changes from era to era…
