The Work

Spaces tells the story of a man returning from war to his village, where two women take him in. Their meeting reflects the toll that war has taken and the silenced voices of people who have grown tired of the image of heroism. The three cope with the time that has passed and their desire for support in their loneliness; They explore new ways to connect and build a new present together.

Spaces strives to create a space to deeply look at life, beauty, sadness, hope, and the echo of humanity’s actions.
