The project takes place in Pamenar in Southern Tehran. It is about a small part of the society that lives in the city just like others. They laugh, they cry, they fall in love and they dream the same way. But they do more than just that. They experience life in ways that are hidden from eyes of the others. They are fighting the big fight, each day taking their chance to win. But is it really a matter of winning or losing? No one will ever know, no one will ever care. They are the same as others, they dream of being happy, they dream to be free and most importantly they dream of being seen. But could they ever be?
