Director statement :

Almost all people have experienced the bitter taste of war and its after effects at different times in history, and in these years, the people of Afghanistan and Ukraine more than ever. The hateful war and the selfishness and greed of politicians with an ideology or utilitarian perspective put a heavy burden on the shoulders of people who have to carry the grief of their dearest people on the hard and rocky path of life. Hoping for a day when peace will warm and illuminate the whole earth like the warm light of the sun. This is a film dedicated to peace and all people who are far from their homeland.
