Director Statement

Emigrating from Iran due to political and economic conditions made us think of making a film in this field. It is very difficult to legally leave the country and go to other countries due to the existing sanctions. Some of those who are forced to migrate can only leave the country through the border. This type of migration is very dangerous and serious injuries may be caused to the migrants. Those who are politically active cannot speak freely. Every word and every criticism is accompanied by a sharp reaction from the government. Considering the political and suffocating conditions that exist, immigration has become the first issue of Iranian youth. We hope this short film has shown a small part of the problems of immigration from Iran
