Director’s Statement

A small newspaper report caught my attention years back. It was about a weird dream of an apparently crazy man. I started developing the concept for my next film when I find that even a naive dream can actually turn to be a threat to the system. It can, as well, land someone up in a misery which he or she doesn’t deserve. I wanted to make a film on journeys of dreams – some lost amidst the growing violence and intolerance of today’s time, some still gasping for life, and some more that are not ready to succumb. The film is on simple human dreams and the dreamers.

I still belief warplanes want to fly far away from war zones just to remember the song of the sky.
