Two souls surviving in a jungle also known as the metropolis.

Director statement:
I lived as an immigrant more than half of my life in various countries. I know what it feels like to be an alien; I know the struggles and still face them today. This film shines a light on the struggles of living in a big city as an immigrant through contemporary dance because dance is a universal language communicated through movement. The film also reflects on a person’s own struggle with themselves and their journey of finding themselves. We are stronger together and stronger when united as one.
