Written and Directed by Narges Haghighat
Produced by Ariel Nasr
Iranian-Canadian animator Narges Haghighat draws on personal experience with isolation and depression to craft a tale of a woman who has lost her lips and cannot laugh. In search of this vital missing piece of herself, the woman sets out across a harsh landscape in search of joy and pleasure. When she meets a man who offers happiness, she goes along with his deal–giving up a piece of herself in return. But soon she realizes that she must find what she needs inside herself.
