The inner-space phenomenon, with becoming the focus of lack of communication getting separated from outside more and more, is in front of us as a scene of truth. In other words, the walls that were built by the defence mechanisms are like fragile decors that are designed with concern and fear for special places. Limited by the walls, the interior space takes the audience to a private area that pushes them to the limits of a psychic blindness. The reality of the outside world integrates with the inner-space to deepen the traumatic extent. This traumatic statement that leaving itself behind mostly, presents the emotional scenes of a generalized common story adapted to today, once again.
