"In the midst of a journey of profound self-discovery, two friends delve into their deepest personal moments, shattering the silence as they confront their hidden desires. This 12-minute short film is a thought-provoking exploration of body politics, censorship, gender norms, and societal taboos that will leave you pondering long after the credits roll."
The confrontation of unspoken desires with the help of a friend. An honest, fearless, and strong examination of the body and identity in relation to social taboos, violence, and power.
The film is independently created by a BIPOC and Queer cast & crew. It is about queer friendship and transparency that leads us to a new discovery about our own desires, shame, and patriarchal society. It chooses a non-normative approach and alludes to the conservative approach of Sohrab Sepehri´s Poem as well as Kiarostami´s film of the same title.
