Looking at each member of the family not as the roles they play but as human beings became a wonderful starting point for me to regard relationships around me differently. I started this film because of the suffocation, hatred and affection that I felt in the relationship between my grandmother and m mother. Not wanting to live according to their expectations, I started this film feeling sorry for them. But during the two years I spent in producing this film, I came to love their lifestyle. This was a big achievement for me.
