"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."

Production Notes

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.
