A poetic depiction of a poem by Persian poet, theologian and Sufi mystic Rumi. Having been written in Farsi in the 13th century, the poem explores diversity, peculiarity, being outcast from the society. It seeks the meaning of rules in the society, emphasizing the freedom of an individual regardless of the colour of their skin, religion or social status. The film is a collage of various parts of the poem being recited, matching the timelessness of Rumi’s poetry and the universality of the subject matter. His poetry has been filtered to relate to the contemporary personal experience, and set in the modern society including all its evident issues.
