Who are we really?
What makes us who we are?
What if our body had a soul and a mind if its own?
I try to ask these questions every day. Being a real human being who is independent in this modern world is not really to be free. There are many demands from the environment and there is turmoil within the body itself which continues to ask questions about the future. Our bodies have their own memories that bring happiness, wounds and traumas. Which we hide from strangers, or people we have just met. It could also be that people we know closely don’t know us completely, because only we ourselves know what’s in our hearts. Good and bad are biases that continually clash with each other in our growth. Through this film, I want to reflect on the memories in our body and try to imagine a polemic between our mind and body. Sometimes when we don’t talk, that’s when we actually talk. Sometimes silence is another form of speaking. Just imagine that our five senses can talk. Search yourself. Discover yourself.
