Director Statement

Superstitions along with human ignorance can lead him astray and harm other beings. The belief in sacrificing animals to achieve dreams and goals in Iran led to the making of this film.
Some resist these superstitions and others cultivate this belief.
In this project, we tried to portray these superstitions and use symbols that are found in the homes of most Iranians. Although sacrifice is not a widespread practice in Iran as it used to be, it still exists and on a day called Eid al-Adha, animals such as cows and sheep are sacrificed as a religious ritual.
Our filmmaking group consists of young people who have studied in this field and each of us is eager to share our experience. Sacrifice of an animal in the forest by someone who does not believe in this practice is the basis of our film.
