Produced, written, and directed by Farzaneh Omidvarnia, the short animation is about a group of refugees who try to arrive in a safe country in search for a better life.
They pay a smuggler to take them across the boarders in a fridge truck. However, the freezing temperature of the truck turns their hopes for a better future into a fierce struggle for survival.
