Director's View

The structure of the story is devised like oriental folk tales especially the Iranian ones. But it is different because of its modern characters, settings and locations. Just like those tales, it combines reality and imagination in an amusing, entertaining way to give a hint to realities and challenges in the world today, especially those dealing with the connection of men to the nature and environment.
