The Chairs

Kerim and Rena were in love, but had to marry other people. Despite the passing of time, their love is now prohibited and dangerous in the society they live in. They see each other every week on a hill where the villagers go to use their mobile phones, but they cannot express their feelings. They can only express their love secretly, through lights flashing in the dark of night.
