Director’s Note

Marjan Khosravi

The world’s peace definitely depends on women and if the women are not at peace, they cannot bring up healthy children. Therefore, to save the world, we have to take care of the pregnant women more.

Shahnaz is a good example of my life, she is living in a way that I leaved 10 years ago.  Shahnaz is a sample of all of Iranian women like me and my mother that fight for her fate and future! Shahnaz’s life is much more depressing and there is lots of pain in her real life, I tried to show it more soft and more understandable with cinema for the international audiences.
