Putting Up a Fight: Three films about doing what you have to do.
Yasi and raha , two girls whom rejected by everyone and everything.
Yasi tried everything she could to make the last appoinment to raha before shes taken to solitary confinement.
Raha fears of the rumors that if a girl is virgin before her execution, her virginity must be taken by a man, more than she fears death.
Yasi does everything in her power not let her girlfriend get executed!

Suite Night is based on a true story. I want to make my own dream and my own world for my films. Women and sexual minorities are under contact scrutiny in my society. In this film, I touch upon several issues faced by these groups because I myself am one of them. I want to talk about things that are an invitation to silence.
With all the constant dangers and difficulties in making this film, for a long time, I had panic attacks and was under constant stress because of the consequences I thought might face. There is a red line in the place where I live, which stops me from expressing my creative thoughts freely but I still made this film for you to see.
