It’s about how love can defy bad governments and save lives in dark times. I found it intriguing how young couple and some old keep going to parks in Myanmar and exchange kisses and love. The image of a wolf lurking behind means there’ll always be threats and unseen attacks on these people’s lives. Cell-like things are my obsession. They represent the growth of something undesirable amid our journey of life.
