Anything worth Sharing about the movie
This story shook me very much. I first read this story when I was in National School of drama. We had done Anton Chekhov’s Play “Cherry Orchard” in NSD. I decided to make a short film based on this story because my opinion about money is the same as the Young man in the film.
