Luxembourg Airport. Late in the evening. A veiled 16-year-old iranian teenager is frightened to take her red suitcase on the automatic carpet. She keeps pushing back the moment to go through the arrival gate and seems more and more terrified.

Director's Statement

My thoughts are with the Iranian women right now who are fighting for their rights. I hope this short movie can help changing situation. The aim of my film is to abolish the women's oppression all over the world.
