Produced in 2013, the 20-minute film was screened at the American film festival to protest against Donald Trump’s foreign policies.
The short film narrates the story of a young boy who is collecting money by delivering pirated films in order to buy a digital camera for himself. While he is traveling from one place to another he encounters different people fighting to solve their personal problems. When he collects enough money to buy the camera, he realizes that dollar rate has gone higher and he cannot buy the camera yet.
