The Film Stage

In a society where women and girls are often overlooked, if we pay more attention, we will find some of the girls and women who are acting as decent heroines and fighting for their goals without being supported by those around.
The story of Singo, that revolves around a heroine named Shafa, shed lights on so many hidden roles of the girls and women in the society. Shafa and her sister both sacrifice themselves, one to save the environment and the other to save her family.
We must indeed change this indifference toward women and girls in the society.
Ali Reza Mohammadi Ruzbehani
