The movie tells this uncontrollable and human urge to escape. Its hope for an elsewhere, a better world, a new reality. I wanted to show how a relationship, no matter how strong the feelings are, can be destroyed by this fundamental desire to escape and the dilemma which can come up in the soul of the one who is torn between love and need to escape.
