Directed by Sajjad Shah-Hatami, the film grabbed the best short film award at the international section of the 10th edition of the event.
The film’s main character faces a dilemma regarding one’s innermost feelings. He must choose between sense and sensibility. The ones closest to him have always judged him and these never-ending judgments fear him and make him doubt. He now has to work fast to achieve his goal; because, he knows that one’s true identity is what matters most to them.

Launched in 2012, the Jozi Film Festival was initially created to provide a platform for local filmmakers, to reach audiences under serviced by traditional cinemas and to develop an audience for South African films.
The Johannesburg-based festival began accepting entries from around the world in 2014 and is now firmly established as one of the sub-continent's leading film festivals.
This year’s edition of the event was held on October 1-10, 2021.
