I think that opening up about our feelings makes it a lot easier to deal with them. In this short documentary, I have explored the fear that lies within us. Perhaps talking about it would give us a chance to overcome it or even live with it.

Director's notes
I believe that by shedding light on the fears that reside within us, we create an opportunity for emotional healing and personal empowerment. The film serves us that, speaking openly about our fears rather than bottling them up.

I tried to stay away from filming talking heads style and, filming most of the film's scenes in the streets of Egypt and photograph passers-by, as each of them forms the gateway to a big world full of fears lurking inside him and is always afraid to talk about it, so I decided to film them through the hero of the film, whose story is similar many in society, in addition to using colors and visual identity for the film that expresses the feeling of fear.
