Leila Vismeh poetically depicts the anxieties of contemporary man on his arduous path with a metaphorical expressionist style; a path on which he loses many opportunities due to geographical determinism or political monopolies, leaving no choice but to continue hopelessly without a certain destination. But it goes on its way. And there is no refuge but love. She says in simple and sincere language that the Earth needs motherly love to survive.
